new oil sketch

Shotgun Portrait study 1

This is an oil sketch on a gessoed piece of reused cardboard packaging.  It is roughly 13″ x 14″.  I did this study as part of my Shotgun series.  The reference photo was taken with the Panoramic feature on my phone.  It was then manipulated in Photoshop and from there copied in oil paint.

The two sides of the subject’s face become slightly easier to see at a distance (above).

For this study I was focused primarily on texture.  As you can see (above and below), in some areas I used a lot of paint.
