Capone portrait Close up


I posted the portrait of Capone awhile ago but it wasnt a very good picture. I recently reshot it for my next sketchbook and did some close ups to show the brush work. I am still the furthest thing from a painter but want to keep going.....oil painting is the most difficult thing I have ever done, artistically speaking....and yes my brush work needs work too

Great to see a linear designer tackle painting. I think it turned out well. You may want to try thickening up the paint, especially in the areas that require careful drawing. You'll find that you can actually work edges and sculpt the paint around better when it's thicker. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it does look like the paint is fairly thin (not necessarily thinned with medium, but a thin coat), which is why I'm saying this.

Hey David,
Dood! I love your painting AND your dog.
He reminds me of mine. I have a AKC Pedigree American Pitbull.
He's awesome, I have a few pics on my blog. Here's the link if you wanna see just how much they look alike - LINK

Those puppy drawings you did of him in your book are great too.
For those who haven't picked up the book you gotta get it and see what Im talking about!

Anyway, have a great weekend. Peace

Oils are difficult indeed David. Mess with watercolour and even if you have no control you get some charming spots of colour. Mess with oil paint and mud occur. You`re doing great my friend. Trust me. Your colors are clean and drawing is the key! Best!

That is so cool...
It helps a lot when you have a dog with such personality!
