Marcelo Oil



Finished oil painted for a private commission. Marcelo has quite an interesting and unique face. At first I was a bit overwhelmed and not sure what to do,he has a lot going on, there are many options to play with. Because I felt his face was so unique and different, I decided to hold back a bit on the exaggeration and focus more on what I was interested in, which was the unique shape of his mouth and chin as well as the interesting color within his face. I also wanted a more painterly feel with this piece so rather than painting every single hair, I just suggested it. It felt appropriate for this particular piece.

11x14 oil on panel.

Nothing like laying down paint on a real surface.. with texture even. Glad to hear you are going to do some work on the "fine arts" side of the street.

Wow this is awesome! nothing beats an oil painting, love the texture and way you defined the hair. Do you ever miss working with the oils after painting digitally for too long?

Great painting Jason.
You're technique is very good...
and the caricature is funny (I'm not sure you've shown a picture of your model, but I'm sure the likeness is good.
Something funny : the jaw, the mouth and the chin are looking like what I'm sketching in my attempts to caricature Michelle Obama...
