Two More Oil Portrait Sketches

10" x 8" Oil on Panel
Here's a couple portrait sketches in oil paint, made a few weeks ago at the weekly portrait sessions. Unlike the paintings in the "Profiles" post, I managed to get to these two sessions early enough to set up in front of the model.

12" x 9" Oil on Panel
My usual three color palette was used in these paintings; yellow, red, and black, plus white. The specific colors can vary from painting to painting. For me, the yellow might be cadmium yellow, or yellow ochre. Red can be cadmium red, medium, or deep. So far the black used has always been ivory black.

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