Mug shot 106: Casper (Oil on linen, 16 x18 inches)
Although I have not posted at all since May I have been painting consistently but wiping most of them. This one though is a commission and I used real linen and worked larger, life size -- so I knew I had to take the painting all the way to the finish line. That sort of altered the way I tackled it. Also I did a few preliminary oil sketches to get familiar with everything and had a wee bit more confidence when I got down to business. I just loved his face, his level gaze. And the plaid, the plaid!
