Fechinesque Portrait

Here's my latest dabblings with oil, attempting yet another portrait with the Zorn palette, and this time trying to emulate Fechin's way of markmaking. I think color-wise it's getting much better, but still a long ways to go, and slowly but surely my drawing problems are improving. And working with goopy, squishy, blendy oil paint is always fun, haha.

Later this week I'll update this, since we're going to be going back in to it with three additional colors added to the palette, so we'll see if the colors can be bumped to the next level and closer to full white light.
