"Summers End"


Working on a storyboard for my eBook.


The painting of a portrait.

I thought I would document my approach and thoughts on painting a portrait. In the initial stages, I usually sketch the portrait in with raw umber on a toned canvas. The toned canvas can be any warm color. In this instance, I used cadmium red diluted with mineral spirits. In the second half hour session I paint in the shadows and light areas.
