Oil Portrait - He Kongde

Here's a copy of a piece by He Kongde. The goal for this one was to apply the tiling method, which is building spaces of paint that are the correct value and color and leaving them, doing as little blending as possible.

This isn't quite as polished as I'd like it to be, everything kinda piled up over the weekend and I wasn't able to get to it until today, so it ended up being 3.5ish hour painting. But I think it's my most successful color mixing to date.


  1. nice job man, it looks like one of my better paintings lol so much practice to do...
    now if I only knew who He Kongde was

  2. Thanks very much! And yeah, practice practice for us all, haha.
