This painting of “Gus” is 12 x 12 inches, oil on archival cotton rag paper, mounted to an archival panel.
Quick sketch in oil directly on paper.
Basic drawing shapes and lay-in with warm and cool colors. At this point I only used ultramarine blue, cad red light and white.
Continue to adjust the drawing and the values.
