This oil sketch is from my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. I could see myself doing this up really right as a finished oil painting someday.
It was done on a piece of canvas that actually comes in the form of a sketch pad. You just tear off the sheets and away you go. Those kind of pads are nice because when I really screw up and have to chuck the thing, I don't feel as if I'm being too wasteful. However I'm thinking of going exclusively to artist panels in order to do away with the texture of the canvas all together. Sometimes I work too thinly in my oils to get the brushwork to show, which is what I'm always after in a finished painting.
