Roger Hurtado Oil
One of the biggest things that frustrates me about painting traditionally, especially with oils, is that I can't seem to ever get an accurate scan or picture . . . the original always looks much better. I just scanned this oil in of Roger Hurtado and tried messing with the levels a bit to get it close, but it's just not quite right? The original has a nice wet "oil" look to it, rich texture and color. Anyways, I suppose there's not much I can do about it right now . . . . . ?
This is a small 8"x10" oil of artist Roger Hurtado, painted last week at the ISCA convention in Ohio. I was going for a look with this portrait that would hopefully make viewers look twice. I wanted the exaggeration to be subtle, almost as if the subject really does look just like this. Hopefully it has that effect?
