Blackout by Jammers Blackout by Jammers
Oils, 36 X 36.

Wow. Can't believe I got a DD on this. A lot of people made a similar comment - that this looks like a photo at first. It's not - it was painted the good old fashioned way, with oils. The brightest parts have the least amount of paint - the highlights on the face have actually been wiped out, with hints of pure, translucent Raw Sienna showing through. Same thing for the top of the couch, and parts of the arms. Anyhow, thanks to everyone who took a bit of time to look at my painting. I appreciate all the comments a great deal!

One last thing - to all who were interested - this piece is titled after the Muse song of the same name.

I'll have to train myself to shade with the same discipline that you have.
