Itchy Gull

"Itchy Gull"  (oil, 6x6 inches)  click here to bid

My oil demo from the "Why Paint Small" workshop earlier this month in Valentine, Nebraska. I first did a 'grisaille' underpainting with burnt umber. Starting with a wash of a medium tone, then lifting out the lights and laying in the darks. This dried overnight and I painted the colors the next day. There might have been a video of this one, but I haven't got my hands on it yet. Meanwhile check out this gull post from 2012, showing my process for oil painting.

Itchy Gull is a bit looser but I blame that on it being only my second oil painting in almost 2 years, plus I was trying to talk at the same time, lol!
