Final Darrick Portrait by johannachambers Final Darrick Portrait by johannachambers
I like this even though it's kind of weird. He turned out looking sort of metallic. Wish I'd used a different color of gesso.
Oil on wood, 5" x 7" ish.
An oil glazing technique I learned in school from Daniel Rice, best painting teacher ever: [link]

looks great i love the feeling the painting has and the flow of it the skin gives you kind of a sad feeling and the hair is so vibrant and contrast the cool skin tones you put in...this i think is one of my favorite out of all the ones you put on

Thanks! I did a lot of layering, of thin oil glazes to get this look. :)
