Portrait Study #7
"Portrait Study #7", 14 x 11, Oil on Museum Board
For now, it is still too cold and rainy to go outside and paint landscape and I have many photographs that I've taken over the years. This one, painted several days ago, was from a color print. But today the color printer is out of ink, so I'm working from black and white. Other than the fact that photographs can sometimes dramatically change the values, in a way it is easier to work from black and white photographs because the mind is at least not fixated on matching color and it is easier to experiment.
