Here is a close-to-final photograph of the first writer’s portrait on which I am working. (The whiteness on the shirt is from the camera flash.) The painting stats: oil on canvas, 24×36 inches.
It is painted in the method of the Old Masters: with several layers and paying close attention to detail. I have been predominantly informed by Neo-Classical painters.
I have also applied the first coat of varnish to the tiger painting and have started the underpainting for the 30×40 inch painting I will be sending to auction.
