Wow - I still do oil painting?!

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

I had just assumed at some point that I was probably just done with oil paint, but it seems it has it's uses after all.
This is my grandmother. It's pretty recognizable, but not photographic. I decided to start working on this with her cause it's such a good excuse to be hanging around, and I really want to do this before, well... she's probably not going to be around that much longer, so seize the chance.
Perhaps you can see some influence of Lucien Freud. Perhaps I would have painted it just the same way regardless. Either way, I guess it's clear I don't have his color sense, but I get by.
I'm just glad it's not a total mess, and with a little luck it will be a nice memento.
