Oil Painting Demo Video

I made my first demo video, you can watch the painting process sped up.
The original footage was about 8 gig and I haven't found a way to compress it and maintain the HD quality but this isnt too bad for a first try.

Here is the finished painting

I should be doing another one soon !

Painting Process

This one is still untitled at the moment. Below are a few pics of the process. It's 24" x 36" oil on canvas.

This is after the first layers of color have been added. 

Then some more layering on the face

Then redefining the shapes and adding in the background

And this is the finished work

Just finished up another large painting, 24x48 inches, inspired by the Greek goddess Venus.
I wanted to do my own interpretation inspired by the classical works by Botticelli and Bouguereau.

It is listed in my Etsy shop.
