Had this painting for nearly a year before I did the finishing touches. Always helps to have a fresh eye.

Nia Oil Portrait

“Nia”, oil on 5040 linnen canvas.

Here is the palette before I started painting. I’m typically trying to reduce the amount of colors, here I stuck with four colors and white. For the very last brushstrokes then, that highlight some areas, I add a tad of extra colors.

Oil Pallete Mix

The palette mixed before starting to paint. The colors used are: Cremser White (Oud Holland), Winsor Blue (Red Shade), Indian Yellow (Winsor), Permanent Magenta (Winsor), Transparent Oxide Red (Rembrandt)
