Mutton Chops

7" x 5" Oil on Canvas Panel
Our model for the portrait session last Thursday was fun to paint. I arrived a little late so I had to set up way over on the side, as all the spots in front of the model were already taken. Because of that, I only got to paint one mutton chop, not both. That would have been twice as much fun!

This little painting was made, as usual, with just three colors, plus titanium white. Cadmium yellow and cadmium red were used, but instead of ivory black I used a Holbein color called "blue black."

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