|"The bold and the beautiful", oil on panel, 24x30cm|
This is another painting for the JKPP-group on Flickr where artists from all around the world paint or draw portraits of other artists. Subject of this painting is the talented Sue Hodnett and you can find more of her work here.
I started this painting on a bright green colored panel (some of which you can still see in the lower part of the painting). It took quite some time to cover this up but I like how some of the green still shines through in the skin colors. I really enjoyed painting all the bold impasto strokes towards the end of the painting, I hope you like it too.
Do you ever paint on a colored ground or do you prefer white?
