Ogee & Omar Progress

Stage 4

Stage 3

Totally dig working on this commission. It's a bit of an experiment. I really want to incorporate the integrity of the wood panel. The wood is very porous and absorbs thinned paint easily. I'm basically just staining the wood with layers of oil paint/Liquin washes. I've blocked out the lightest areas with gesso so it retains a sense of a highlight. It makes for a very soft feel.
