Oil Potrait, Nevada artist paints ocean portrait day 5
I am finally back to my portrait. I am now substitute teaching and have been work a lot. I think I may have to now schedule my painting on Saturday's.
Today i painted in the main subject and the rail of the boat.
He has a black sweatshirt on but you know black is never just black so I have to put some of the highlights in and the wrinkles in. The wood on the boat rail, again never just one color is pretty weather beaten so later I will go in and give it some wear and roughness.
Remember it's all about stages. Dark to light.
I still need to build up the skin tones and define the creases for age.
All and all I think it is moving along nicely and I am sure it will be on time.
All comments are welcome.
