My First Oil Figure Painting

"Remembrance"
9"x12"
Oil on canvas panel

I've officially broken the ice:  for the first time I painted a portrait with oils! AND it came out pretty resemblant to the model, amazing uh? :))
I'm happy with the flesh colors that I came up with. Skin color is not easy to mix, and I with my limited palette I was able to create nice combinations of lights and darks, though the photo changed the hues a little.

I don't know if it is a good painting at the stranger's eyer, but it's great to me because it's the first one of a its kind.

I love giving myself new challenges and get over my own fears (or at least trying to! lol)

Thanks for stopping by,
Robie
