An oil sketch

I haven’t painted for a few days but hope to make it up this week. This sketch is from about 10 days back when I was taking a break from the KMP’s. There are many errors that I can see but no attempt has been made to fix them coz then it would no longer be a sketch : )  One bit that I like is the nose which has form, something I’m always hoping to achieve.  It would nice of course if I could get that for all of the face instead of just one feature.


A pen & ink sketch from even earlier using the same ref.

Update : Forgot to mark this as a KMP. This becomes no. 25.

KMP’s are skill building exercises advised by Kevin Macpherson in his book Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light & Color. I started these in 2007 and am continuing with it in 2010. If you want to know more about this set of exercises click here.
