This is a very small painting, about 15x15 cm. For the details I have used a size 1 synthetic brush. Normally I use Gesso before I start painting, followed by a layer of acrylics and then endless of layers of oil paint. This time I just simply started with the oil and I loaded the brush with more color than I normally do with the goal to finish the painting in just one layer.
In the end I blended out the worst edges to give the painting a smoother finish.
I've been asked by a couple of friends to hold a "portrait workshop" in a couple of weeks time and I am already planning for that little session. It will be my first time trying to teach someone else to paint. Hopefully my passion for painting will rub off :)
