Oil Painting Workshop... The Results.

Sean Cheetham is an excellent Artist, I've learnt a lot from him. I've never used oil paint before, but I truly enjoyed his class. Here is what I've done during his 5 days "Alla Prima" Oil Painting workshop at LAFAA... or more precisely, the 2 last paintings. Each one of them is approximatively 6 hours or work.


This is Day 5: (using a limited palette, know as the Zorn palette, Anders Zorn) White, Ivory Black, Yellow Ochre and either Vermilion or Cadmium Red Light or Med, in that case I used Scarlet Red.















And below, Day 4

Blimey, they're beautiful. Really like the sculptural modeling and the loose bit's where the canvas shows through.

Stéphane Kardos said...

I love the red background reflecting on the brunette's hair. Oil is so fantastic for that sort of effect. Great work!

SK, you can use my portrait from my photo here.

Wowzer, wowzer, wowzer!!! These are intense and incredible. I love the way you allow the color to fade out in the bottom one. Gorgeous.
