Kevin - Progress 9

Oil painting is such a slow process for me, since I am still so new to the medium. Anyway, after about another couple of hours work today (I've been too distracted with other things to give this portrait a full-day's work) I have adjusted the background and smoothed out the shirt a bit. Tomorrow I'll make minor adjustments, and hopefully sign it.

brilliant work. i am surprised that you say oils are a new medium for you: you handle them beautifully. following your thinking during each stage was very helpful: i often find it difficult to see the whole.

Hi Holly; I really like the smoother tones in the background, as well as the lighter values on the right side (his right) of his face. Very nice work. Are you going to SF? Hope to see you there.
