A new oil painting done on a 16"x20" Masonite board. I basically like it. One interesting thing is that as it has been sitting against the wall for the last few weeks I've notice that it has a fantastic glow to the face (this isn't really relayed by the digital image), which is what I had hoped for. The dull cool colors in the background and warm colors in the face to direct the attention. I think the face has 3-4 layers to build up the lights so I suppose it is reflecting light just below the surface.
I've included a detail so that you can see the paint work up close.
