Oil Sketch of Posing Male Nude's Back

Oil on Gessoed and Oil-Primed Archival Paper, 7" x 10"

This is a very small painting. It is only 6" x 3". Therefore, I was able to do it in just

That can undoubtedly be beautiful - but it's done all the time. I wanted to try some-

you. It sure is fun to be painting again though.

Thanks for visiting.

This oil
over brown under-painting was done on a gessoed 6" x 6"
masonite panel. The main part of the features that you can see
are the underpainting. There are many glazes as well: transparent
Gold Ochre, Indian Yellow, Transparent Red Earth, Transparent
Yellow, and then also a great deal of opaque paint.

This is a fun way to paint. Solve the drawing part first, and then
you are relatively free to fool around with color.

Thanks for visiting today.

P.S. You may have noticed that I've added Google Ad Sense to my

hard......for everyone.
