Kim Jong Oil study



On the side, I am working on a Kim Jong painting that will feature his full body in a scene, I don't want to give any of it away at this time, but will be sure to post as I work on it. This painting is a 16" X 16" oil study that I did in 3 hours. The reason for this study was to experiment with what kind of palette I would like to use for my final painting. For this painting, I painted with a limited palette, I chose to use Ivory Black as my darkest blue, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson, and of course white. I'm not sure yet if this is the feeling I want for my final painting, so I may do another smaller even more simplified oil study before the final.

Wow, I know you should be used to see people get shocked by your work, but dude, this is amazing! I've been looking at your blog for nearly an hour and I can't close my mouth since then. Unbelievable. The step by step of Bush and Sharon is the only reason that anybody would have to believe it's a painting and not a picture with some photoshop on it.
One more thing: I really need to have this Kiefer Sutherland on a bigger size. Could you post it a little bigger? (I know you probably sell it, I'm not saying you post a giant picture, just for me to put it as a wallpaper or send it to one or two friends that love 24)
I'll be around here looking for updates!

Thank you J and Oscar! Oscar, thank you, really glad you like my study. I hope the final will be much better, the idea has been conceived so now I'm waiting to see what the birth will be like! :)

Oscar, send me an email, and I'll send you a larger version of Kiefer! Glad you enjoy my blog!
God Bless!

Great work!

How do you go about mixing colours for the shadows on the face? I know there's no set formula for flesh tone due to different lighting etc, but I sometimes have trouble with shadows on faces, and keeping them from looking too black.

Dan,
One rule I tend to follow is that the shadows are painted thinner than where the light is hitting, other than that I am painting what I see, is the shadow cool or warm, I'm also thinking form and anatomy.

Maybe the best way for me to explain is if you email me something that you did which shows shadows? Feel free to email me if you'd like.
