333. Oil on Linen Skull

Oil Paint on Linen Canvas (12in x 12in [30.5cm x 30.5cm]). I found this lovely stretched linen canvas at the art store the other day and it inspired me to give oil painting another go. This was painted from life and my goal was to work somewhat loose.

The texture is awesome. Great work as usual!

Great oil work. I am finding oils quite nice to work with but my painting takes much longer than a day unfortunately!

Beautiful. There is something serene about this one, very calming. Which begs the question - How much?

I wanted to say thank you for the ornament skull print (contest prize). It is absolutely wonderful, I can't wait to frame it :)

Painted from life? Shouldn't it be all red and bloody?
It's a very lovely painting.

Now take your brush and put a happy little skull right in the middle. That right, the cool colors are calming don't you think? A nice change from that angry dark skull you did a while back.
