Ultimate Shades of Grey!

This is one of two paintings I'm doing for the Gamblin Torrit Grey Competition.  It's a great competition that has few winners, so I'm not holding out great hope of winning.  But it is a fun challenge.  In the contest you can use only Gamblin products, and you're limited to Torrit Grey, which is made up of all the colors Gamblin mixes in a year, a black, and a white.  I used Zinc White and Ivory Black in addition to 2015 Torrit Grey.  I also used Gamsol with a drop of Stand Oil as a medium.

Title:  "Night Dance"

It's 16" x 18", Oil on hand stretched Linen, $500.

About Me

My photo
My name is Bob Shepherd, but when I paint I'm known as "Shep". I love to paint people. Happy people. Sad people. People dancing. People in contemplation. Old people. Young people. Lately I've gotten into painting new things and I'm enjoying the challenge. Flowers and still life's have been fun. My blog is here to show you what I'm doing and how I'm doing it. If I'm doing your commission you can follow the progress of your "PortraitbyShep". If you'd like me to do your portrait please notify me through the blog. Please enter your email above and I hope you enjoy the blog. Shep
