This is a study of an old man done in oils and painted on 12×16 panel. I love to paint in impasto with lots of rich thick paint. Sargent once said the thicker you paint. The more your color flows. I also like the idea of lost and found edges, this engages the viewer more than a photographic image that spells out everything for you. I love paintings that have an abstract quality to them, it’s more difficult to paint in a half abstract half realistic style than one would think. I hope you enjoy and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!
