Portrait Sketch in oil paint

Portrait sketch
15 x 17 cm

In this sketch I tried to pay attention to the structure of the head, while keeping the brushwork as loose as possible. I drew with the brush straight on the canvas, without a detailed underdrawing. I like this spontaneous way of working.

I feel that all the hours of figure drawing and studying anatomy are finally starting to pay off.

I’m now able to make these kind of sketches fairly quick, in about 45 minutes I think, since I always loose my sense of time when I’m painting…
