Portrait Study in Oil - Man with a White Beard

12" x 9" Oil on Panel
This post is from another visit to a painter's studio for a portrait session, this time at Casey Child's studio. I don't often break out the oil paints at these sessions, although I probably should. This time I did. The colors used were yellow ocher, cadmium red medium and ivory black, plus white. It was painted on a grey acrylic ground for pastels. The rough - even abrasive - surface of the pastel ground grips paint extremely well, but tends to eat brushes. 

For more about drawing and painting sessions, go to "Labels" on the side bar and click on "sketching" or "drawing."
