Small Paintings In Oil
This is beautiful, Tammy! This is palette knife, correct? I love the details you achieve with them! He reminds me a bit of Raymond Burr in his Ironside series.
Thanks Autumn! This is done with a palette knife. I start with a quick sketch using a brush and then plunge ahead with a knife. The details just start to happen as the paint builds up. You are right - he does kinda look like Raymond Burr - I will have to tell him.
Very nice painting. And I love that you did it with a palette knife. He looks like an interesting fella.
This is awesome, Tammy...one of your best, I think. Do you do a lot of your work with a palette knife?
Ok...I'm already blown away that you paint such great likenesses with a palette knife. But to do it from LIFE??? You are amazing!
Another super portrait. And I agree with the other comments. Its amazing that you can get such detail with thick paint and a knife. Very unique looking.
Wonderful Tammy, and I have to add that I just saw your rendition of KJ and it's really, really great!
