Work in Progress

16x20 oil commission
After an hour and 15 minutes I have the chair and the pillows on the chair painted with a start to the background and a start to the dogs face. I am using hand made Williamsburg oil paints with Maroger medium.The values in this painting will change as I go along.

Commission Work in Progress

Oil on board
This is a commission I received so I thought I would blog my progress which is something I usually don't do. I started this commission by treating my board with many layers of gesso and black acrylic. The black background made it easy to show the customer the beginning drawing and will be a help with values since this will be a white dog.

"Rusty" oil painting by Charlotte Yealey

Oil Painting
Sunday is a good day to do what you want and that is why I painted "Rusty" an English Springer Spaniel. I love doing miniatures.
