9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas panel
First lessons of painting, Portrait Phase I from Watts Atelier Online.
In these lessons, Jeff introduced the painting the portrait. Limited palette is used on the skull, Asaro head and a cast. He starts off with the burnt umber pick out for the profile views. A pencil layout on canvas that is sprayed with workable fixative. Then a midtone layout of burnt umber. Areas of light are picked out with various tools; q-tips, rags, brushes. Areas of darker values are painted back in.
