My first oil painting project at Angel Academy of Art, using several colors. :)

Took longer than I can remember, but the second painting of this kind, currently a work-in-progress, is much faster. (or so I'm told)

Size: about 50x70cm
Paints: Winsor&Newton and Old Holland

Here you can see the setup before I started painting: [link]

The WIP: [link]
On the right, you can see an unfinished charcoal drawing by a co-student; we were both copying the same plaster cast at the same time.

(so yes, this is copied from a plaster cast)

(and yes, it IS a photo - of an oil painting! ;D )

Thanks for sharing pictures of the set up. I am working towards attending Angel Academy of Art Florence in Spring 2012. I googled reviews of the academy and clicked on yours. Thank you for helping me get a better idea. Your art work is impressive and also really tells a story.
