Here are two stages of a painting I'm working on for the October show at the Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hillsboro. I'm working from a snapshot I took without time to properly frame the picture, so I've cropped it and reorganized things a bit. There's still quite a way to go on this.
This painting is 30 x 32 inches
These oil studies on acrylic-coated Bogus Sketch paper are from last Saturday's Open Life Session at the Multnomah Arts Center. Sophie has modeled for me so much that I could have a show of paintings & drawings of just her.
Another way to treat paper so that you can oil paint on it is to give it a coat of hardware-store-variety shellac. It doesn't warp the paper like the acrylic matte medium does.
Those clips in the corners are clothespins holding the paper to the venetian blinds.
