First glaze

First glaze done. Took about 90 minutes. I’ll adjust the colours and drawing as I go on #portrait #art #painting #oilpainting #glaze #grisaille #underpainting #contemporaryart #realism

Colour glazing – 3rd glaze over the underpainting

Portrait in oil paint by contemporary British portrait artist and portrait painter Matt Harvey
The third glaze has been painted with veils of oil paint over the grey or grisaille underpainting. I did some experimenting with the background here, but ended up painting it out in further glazes.

3rd glaze done. Still a few more needed #underpainting #grisaille #portrait #portraitpainting #oiloncanvas #art #painting #fineart #devon #glaze #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #oilpainting

Would be nice to do another version of this one day – carved directly in Carrara marble using photos as a reference #carrara #marble #directcarving #contemporaryart #sculpture #portrait #stonecarving #babygirl #elbowgrease #portraitsculpture #marblesculpture #stonesculpture #devon

First glaze done on the face. Having fun with the pattern on his sleep suit, stars floating off the picture plane! #oilpainting #portrait #portraitpainting #underpainting #grisaille #sleepsuit #pyjamas #stars #babyboy #rosycheeks
