So todays image is another early oil, and this one had some good education to it.
I was struggling a lot ,which is a common theme of the entire time I was working with oil, or it was working me over, however you see it. Anyway, I was trying to learn to blend so I wanted to sketch something in black and white to get a better grasp of it.
So decided to to draw a caricature modeled after a junior high science teacher who I always perceived as being a mean old lady.
I should note here that I was a shithead pretty much from my early teens through my mid twenties, and by all other accounts she was a pretty typical Jr high science teacher that was actually leaning towards nice. But that isn’t what I was drawing.
I did decide to make the background pink to kind of demonstrate that.
So here is what ending up coming of that.
As you can see it is not a great painting, but I still smile when I look at it. I am sure you can also see that I worked some things out with oil blending and highlights…..and left some other things to learn and develop.
This oil is on an 18×24 canvas board and is for sale. Just $50 and you pay to ship.
