Oil on Gessoed Paper
I nude oil sketch from the Ambiguation Series. Amanda Scott is an artists model and a fellow painter, I met her in Portland. This is from a Saturday session at Hipbone Studio. I painted this in my transition from pastel nudes to oil. I struggled mightily with oils, trying to use the same technique as the pastels and failed miserably.
My breakthrough happened by limiting my palette to five colors. Amanda hates this series. “It’s the color of shit and blood,” she says.
