Portraits in Oil

I am now taking my love of portrait drawing a step further by painting portraits with oil paint! For our last painting project at North Greenville we got to work on painting each other! It was a lot of fun. I was curious to see how I would be able to paint people, as well as draw them. We started out by doing a sort of “underpainting” where we covered the entire canvas with a dark brown tone and wiped away the highlights. You can see what it looked like in the one I did of my classmate at the bottom. For our out of class project we did a 3/4 view of our sitter, and so I chose to paint my brother. He sat very patiently as he read a book. 😉
