Portrait Study #1

On Thursday evenings I have been going to Sanctuary Arts Painting and sculpture center in Eliot, Maine to paint from a live model. Last night I did an exersice using a middle value, grey ground on a gessoed panel and simply painting directly wet into wet. I like using the grey ground because it feels like the painting is already started before I even lay down my first brush strokes.

Portrait study #1, Oil on panel, 6X8.
