I’ve been having a bit of fun tonight. Yes, I have a very large canvas waiting to be painted, but I just wanted to do a little fun exercise, putting some quick portraits together in oil. I really wanted to be quick, to get to the essence. The first on the left took me about an hour (not that quick) and whilst it uses fresh marks, it’s fairly detailed. The second two were much quicker – I was trying to reduce the portrait down to light and dark, to basic marks. I could go a lot further, a lot more interesting in my marks – I’ll have to have a bit more fun to work out how to do that. Roll on next time.
