More oil painting practice

Here's a couple paintings I've done in class recently- the square-format torso is finished (pose is over, anyway). The portrait of a wonderful model named Edith is in progress; one more three hour session on Monday.

Reading books by David Leffel has made me think more about the effect of the light, and how important it is. Or more accurately, how powerful it can be when given the proper attention. Also, the importance of the background in a portrait as an integral part of the image. 


  1. We promise that every oil paintings that you buy from our store is 100% hand-made, which shows rich color and strong stereoscopic feeling. The quality of paint pigment is stable and the color is not easy to change, which is up to the international detection standard of environmentally friendly materials. We pursue high quality of the painting and precise control of the detail.

  2. None of your profs at Ringling can paint or know to paint or have ever learned to paint, half as good as you. Sad, ain't it. I wish someone would advice them to stop the crime of charging so much money in tuition for education provided by lame, inferior teachers.
