Oil on canvas, 5″x7″
I made this mostly to practice with different paints. I wanted to try out a Graphite Grey, made from graphite, that I got not too long ago from Williamsburg. Also it’s been a really long time since I used my Venetian Red from Winsor & Newton. Probably ten years or something. Besides that I think the only other color I used was Naples Yellow Italian also from Williamsburg. I have to say I like all three of them a lot.
Lately I’ve just been making a few sketches like this. I’ve gotten a variety of new paints over the past few months that I haven’t showcased here yet, and I actually have more on the way right now (or I would, if the catalog would ever ship them =_=). I’ll get back into posting paint swatches soon.
