Painting a Face: Oils over Acrylic
Painting the face in oils (Cont.)
NOTE: In the illustration I reference Permanent Rose, when in fact it is the Cadmium Red Deep Hue that I used.
After you finish painting the face it is a good idea to dry it in a dust free place. Oil paints can take days to dry and even weeks depending on the colors you use. I constructed a drying box which works like a charm and dramatically reduces the drying time, while keeping the figure out of the dusty environment.
Here are the final pictures of the head as I painted it. I'm not sure the pictures are as good as they could be.
And there you have it. Please fire away with any questions I may not have answered, or comments you would like to make regarding the tutorial.
Until next time, may all your brush strokes be good ones!
