Old Guy 10" x 8" Oil


This was to be a black an white image, which I have never attempted in paint before. I always reach for the charcoal if I am thinking B+W. I hit a problem when I realised I don't have black paint, I always mix my own, so this is a study in Burnt Sienna, French Ultramarine and White!

Been going back through posts as I've been computerless this past week! This old guy is absolutely fabulous! You are definitely a master of the portrait Sharon.

Youve been busy Sharon , Nice work, I particulaly like the simple bold brushwork on the bike and the portrait of the girl.
Hope all is well in your world / Keith
