September 16 and 17, 2014

I am adding the finished version of the skull painting. I added a layer of oil color. The photo doesn't really let it show, but there are still layers of the under painting in acrylic that come through and add to the aging of it. I could probably do a little more, but I think it has a certain feel in this unfinished state. As previously stated, understanding and rendering the skull accurately is a major aid
in creating a realistic portrait. I'm not there yet, but am learning and feeling more confident with it.
I have also done a few acrylic poppies on canvas.
