One of the first things I painted when I moved back to Atlanta in 2012.
When I paint in oils, I load up several brushes with colors. I use the loaded brushes to apply the paint, switching to a fresh dry brush to blend and soften the edges.
I have a few oil paintings and sculptures that I’ve been working on for years. They’re projects just for me, no deadlines. Sometimes I don’t touch them for months, and I have to wash off a layer of dust before diving back in. It’s like seeing an old friend or talking with a past version of myself. This one is finally getting close to done. Still needs tiny pupils for those tiny eyes #wip
Layers of paint left behind from years of use.
Today I started layering in more color/ details in the face. I like to work thin when I paint with oils–I’ll continue to add more depth and detail in the future layers.
