|'You Don't Say?' 20"x26" Oil on canvas|
So, that's one of the methods that I was taught to paint portraits. There are others, but I use this method most often as it is reasonably quick and also has the added benefit of allowing clients to see what is going on. Having an oil brunaille for the sitters also means that they can feel "progress"... even if the final finishing work is a way off.
I actually "finished" it a while ago, but simply haven't posted it until now.
