I have been busy at work in March, so have not had much time to post. I recently completed a 4-evening Color Theory oil painting class and did the March WetCanvas Portrait Challenge. This portrait was painted in oils and is from a photo reference.

Vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, and Conte charcoal pencil on Sennelier Pastel Card. I like shadows and enjoyed the challenge of obscuring the left side of the face and only suggesting details. The support is very attractive, but also very delicate. I damaged the paper as I was working and had trouble adding charcoal on the damaged areas. Lesson learned: Do not erase too much on this support. (Does this mean don't make mistakes?)

I am working on an oil painting of Christopher. Here is what I have so far. I am in the modeling stage. The vertical stripes behind his head will be curtains.
By the way, a porn site was leaving comments on my blog, so I switched to moderated comments.
