I thought I would show the progression of an oil painting I have just started. This time I did the underpainting in acrylic to speed things along and the next photo shows the first layer in oil. This will probably take me a week or so to finish but I do love working in oil. So different from acrylic and I think the paintings look much richer in color than acrylics. I am still not sure about the background color. I am leaning towards a darker background for more drama but am not sure at this point. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
