Oils Practice No. 3, Scotland Challenge by Avogel57 Oils Practice No. 3, Scotland Challenge by Avogel57
Oils Practice No. 3, Scotland Challange
Oils on Canvas
16x20"
9 February 2012

Jessica Truscott of =faestock puts out a challenge every couple of weeks, to take one of her images and do something along a theme with it; this go around it was "Scotland". I started out trying to channel the Hudson River school of painting, but I'm thinking it ended up more alongt the lines of Sargent or something. Thoughts/opinions? I'm just starting off painting, this is my third go at it with oils. I'm not *really* ready, but hey, that's what a challenge is for, right? It's all a learning process; I'll post more stuff when I'm further along the learning curve.

I'd love to be able to do portraits in oils. Some of my favourite historical art pieces are gothic portraiture. Petrus Christus did an amazing one of a young woman. I haven't really delved seriously into oils, but I can imagine it's quite an in depth process.
