Oil painting – Sketch phase

This blog has been a bit lacking in the explanation department, so starting with this post I will start detailing a bit more of my process.

Starting off would be the below painting that I did for a class, link Tom fluharty class.

The painting was divided into 4 parts: the drawing phase, the underpainting phase, color phase and the adjustment phase.

Starting with the drawing phase, the goal was to capture the likeness of the below picture on paper to transfer to the board.

I focused a lot on structure for this phase, as I know I was still lacking in some departments in terms of structure. Overall fairly happy with the results, though the eyes still come difficult for me.
Ultimately the focus on structure caused me to overlook some of the tones, which I eventually revised.
More to come in the underpainting phase.
