Painting a portrait in oil

  1. 1. Painting a portrait in oil- layer upon layer<br />By South African Artist : Ilse Kleyn.<br />www.artofkleyn.co.za<br />
  2. 2. I start my drawing the outlines with a small brush – using “purple lake”. I then do the under layer in “Indian yellow” and for the darker areas I use “Purple Lake” (Winsor & Newton oil paint)<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. The under-layer is bright and radiant – perfect to vibrate true colour from underneath the finished painting. No white was used in the 1ste layer<br />
  5. 5. With the second layer I use “Burnt sienna” mixed with “ Titanium white”. Little bit of “crimson” on the cheeks and “French Ultramarine” in the shadows.<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. In the top layer I use the same colours as the previous layer but add more high lights with pure white.<br />
  8. 8. The End<br />
