Teeth

I started this painting at home and was pretty excited to paint with oils again. I love the smell of linseed oil and although the mineral spirits make my head spin a bit, I wont be going back to acrylics any time soon. I love the brushing quality and open time of oils.

I covered reeves bfk with yellow ochre gesso and started transferring my original sketch from my moleskine to the paper.


First layers, I feel like painting skin first in most paintings


Hour 2




This is about done, I dont have an image of the final painting yet, (mostly due to the fact that the painting is not complete :) but I need to pay more attention to the fur on the cat and the clothing and such.
