I painted this one back in June, but my client wanted to be surprised when the painting arrived in Australia so I didn't spoil it for him here. This is 8 x 8 inches, oil on hardboard. I used photo reference from my friend and fellow artist Greg Shea of the model Quinn Grey.

Green Sleeves

A recent commission. The client requested a Pre-Raphaelite inspired woman with tattoos that matched the floral wallpaper. Fortunately, I was allowed many months to work on this one. I used photo reference of model Quinn Grey shot by my friend Greg Shea. This is 16 x 20 inches.

It's sometimes frustrating to paint into a wet color and get a muddy mess. However, I've been experimenting with using a fresh, wet ground color to influence the palette of the painting. The algae green mixes into everything I initially lay down. To avoid a dull mess, I used red at the edges of the shadows for some complementary pop. This is 7 x 5 inches, oil on hardboard.
