2 Hours. Oil on plastic coated canvas. Zorn pallete.

Someone at the workshop asked me why I used a Zorn pallete, which is a limited pallete mixed from Zinc white, yellow ochre, alizarine Crimson and Lamp black. Its because oil painting is like a 3 ring circus. It’s a lot of technical stuff to manage while still trying to capture a likeness.

It’s like trying to tie your shoes while you are in a 100 yard dash.

…from the church of the Naked.

One of my favorite things is to a attend a live model workshop with other artists on Sunday afternoon. I have been doing it regularly since 1994.

This painting study is from Sunday. 9×12 oil on canvass board using a Zorn color palette I premixed for use in a self-portrait the day before. (no pun intended).

More on the Zorn palette in the next post.
