Oil painting on 11 x 14 canvas, using alla prima technique (wet-on-wet)

took about 4-6 hours. reference used [link] . Still need to practice more though; can't control the brush as well as i'd like yet. I keep wiping off colours i put on before with the brush accidentally when trying to put on more colours. Maybe I'm using too much oil to dilute it.

I think that this is very lovely, the brush strokes really make it interesting and add to the realism & I really love how it is both so light and dark at the same time, the tones and contrast are very nice.

I fav'd this at school so I couldn't comment then.

Wow, I like it. You said that you keep removing colours, I do that too but with acrylics, because my under layers are really washy and I don't wait for them to dry. I suppose oils would be harder since they never completely dry.

That said, I like the smoothness of the paint and the background, though simple, has interesting depth. The blotchiness of the colour on the skin adds a realism to it, making it quite luminous.
