This piece took about 4 days worth of work, as part of a revamp on some of my pulp fiction themes. This particular painting was done in oil, and here you can see some of the process. I first start with a under painting done in acrylic then I will do a wash over in oil. After laying in key color swatches I will blend the colors in a unified flow. Painting faces and hand tend to be most challenging for me, especially at this small size. The painting is over all 18x24, but the face it self is only 2x3 inches.
