Oil Painting

#

I started oil painting in August 2018 thanks to Mark Carder's Draw Mix Paint method.

#

I followed Mark's method closely for the first paintings: drawing with the proportional divider, mixing the colors, and constantly checking colors. I took more liberties later. First by not pre-mixing the colors, then by checking the colors less.

#

I made my own easel and shadow box as explained by Mark on his website. I used the Geneva Fine Art studio palette and essential set of colors.

#

I'm particularly interested in abstract realism. I enjoy the work and teaching style of painters like David Leffel and Richard Schmid.
