Head Studies II - Man In Fedora

This is another piece which I did today. It is a friend who loves fedoras. It is my second attempt to perfect this loose way of painting using only ultramarine, burnt sienna, and indigo, with dashes of cerulean. Comments welcomed as usual.

Study of Heads


I have not been painting a while. Produced these two over the past two weeks. It's pretty tough to get back on track once you have stopped painting a while. I didn't believe it when one artist told me this some time ago. I now realise the folly of not painting for so long.

These two are taken from photos on two diifferent papers. The colours used are burnt sienna, ultramarine, cadmium red, and cerulean. Dashes of cadmium yellow, burnt umber and indigo were also used.

Critics welcomed.
