From Sketch to Finished Painting

All of these paintings were done in acrylic. I work mainly in oils now. It's interesting to see how much more vibrant they are than my oils though.



For me sometimes it's all in the rough sketch. The composition and a little tonal sketch are all that is required.

I like the colors that you used in all your paintings. It adds a nice vivid atmosphere to your work.
