Sketch book portrait
This is a quick sketch book portrait of my grandson, who I am obsessed with at the moment.
I have primed the paper twice with gesso before starting.
On this portrait I begin with sketching out in charcoal, something I don't normally do but I thought I would give it a go.
Using oil paint and solvent to begin I paint the underpainting.
Once this has dried, I then use oil paints with a bit of linseed oil.
