oil painting ‘mabel’

Currently working on a series of oil paintings with the theme being children and scenery.

This one is still a WIP. It’s on a 16×20 cotton canvas. Here’s the process for the moment.

Oil on canvas 16×20

I have to add in some finishing details to the image. Will complete it in another sitting.


In the above photo, you can see the smaller reference painting I did earlier as a preliminary study before committing to the larger painting. There’s also a lot of glare because the paint is still fresh.
