A new painting. I hope the black and white isn't getting too tedious, I have some color paintings on the way. I really like how this one turned out, but I don't think it will ever translate into the digital format though.
It is oil on board, 16" x 20". I usually go one basic pass to put down all of the basic drawing work, it has very soft edges and not much detail. Then it takes 3 or 4 passes to slowly tighten up all of the edges and details. I would like to do looser work, I plan on going that direction, but a lot of times I just get stuck trying to make it as perfect and beautiful as possible.
Oh well, It's nice enough that I'll make it my new website welcome picture.
