Thanks. While very subtle, I found the model's expression to be slightly vacant. I made her expression a little colder to contrast the warm light.

I like this style you are developing. It is so raw yet so precise in the lighting, volume, planes and general attitude.

do you do all your stuff on 5x7 vamp? What kind of oils do you use?

I try to only do head portraits on 5 x 7s. I do some figure portraits on 8 x 10, and illustration on anything up to 20 inches. I think I've developed a preference for Winsor Newton oil paints. I'm still figuring this out, though.:)

Thanks! I liked how the lit edge of the upper lip made it hard to tell where the lips started.

your mark making keeps impressing me. so simple, but always in the right direction. and your color use is solid as well. i'm trying to do some oil painting on masonite right now and i was wondering if you had any tips? (do you prep the board with shellac or gesso etc? or use any types of thinners or anything that you find useful?)

Thanks! I use pre-cut, pre-gessoed masonite panels. I prepare these with a coating of medium toned acrylic of any color. Once dry, I coat the panel with a thin coat of Galkyd slow dry to help with smooth brush strokes. I use the galkyd slow dry as my medium as well. I like the slow dry because it stays wet all day but also dries within a couple of days, where as regular galkyd dries too quickly, and linseed oil can take more than a week to dry.

ah thanks! slow dry galkyd sounds a lot better than linseed oil (which is all i've used before).

The slow dry has the same consistency as linseed, I just like the quicker dry time.:)
