Oil on canvas
12x16 inches

A recent portrait, using a limited pallette.
Titanium white, ultramarine blue, burnt umber, yellow ochre and raw sienna.

Trying to keep a sense of colour harmony as I did with Becka. Really enjoyed doing this one and am pretty pleased how it turned out. I wanted to capture the emotion in his face and am calling it a success.

Hi Ryan,
Very nice work you are doing. I enjoy seeing the various end results with the different mediums you are trying. Reading about your classes has really brought back memories of my college days. Between painting, drawing & design classes I was using many mediums like you.
Really nice work on this one here....very good work on the face and shadows. Well done Ryan.

Thanks Ron

I'm enjoying the challenge of just letting my artistic mind run wild with mediums and genres at the moment.

My new term starts in September- can't wait!
