Work in Progress--Portrait of my father in oils. Working on compositions and mood in this painting. I really wanted to show the flesh tone in a naturalistic way. They grey seems to work well though I'm still looking at changing some elements of the composition because there is a "deadness" to it at the moment. I still hold hope that it may work out well.
this is about 3 hours worth of painting. Canvas is 24" by 24"
I am particularly drawn to square-format canvases right now.
