The beginnings of a beautiful oil portrait…

Ah, I have moved to my oils temporarily for this precious painting of my niece, Rachel. She is being painted on an 18 x 24″ gallery wrapped canvas with Rembrandt oils and I am using my awesome new Dynasty brushes for this one. I LOVE them!! As you can see I am not finished yet, I have only blocked in my base coat. I try to get a good majority of the painting in. I let it dry a few days and then will go in for my next pass, working in more details in her hair, putting her blouse in, throwing more colors into the background… But this is a pretty good start already, a very good likeness of my beautiful Rachel!

UPDATE:

Here is the finished painting WITH my niece, the beautiful model that I love so much 🙂
