Philip Proctor: a five sitting oil portrait.

And here's another painting that's a good example of a speedy oil portrait. This was done in five or six sittings. It's painted in oil and in tempera and if you click to look at the enlargement you can see the brush marks are all still there and they somehow describe the important parts of the face and expression. I hope it gives the feeling that you know the sitter. These head and shoulder oil sketches make a traditional yet lively portrait.
