My second oil painting ever. I definitely have suffered from the temptation to blend blend blend. It was kind of funny because I purchased Marks portrait course and he’s very clear about avoiding the temptation to blend. And I could hear his voice in my head as I went to blend. Not only did I probably over blend, but holy cow it’s very difficult.
But it’s from a reference photo and the actress has flawless skin. Still working on it. Almost didn’t post it some of you guys are so good it’s kind of amazing. But inspiring!
I have so much to learn. But this is a lot of fun. Mark videos are fantastic, and so are the Geneva products. Using Geneva paint.
16x20 canvas board.
Still need to finish, add some detail and then I’m going have a million questions about varnishing and framing.
