The second of my studies about Vincent was his oil painting of his friend Joseph Roulin. This is his painting above.
A scary project to try as there is so much detail and so much to go wrong.
Under the guidance of Jeanne Oliver I had a go, and was surprisingly pleased with my efforts.
Next, I white gessoed over the whole thing and then added some umber acrylic paint both on Joseph and for the background.
Worked on the face and beard and began to create the wallpaper.
And my finished piece. I have learned loads about mixing his colours and layering for depth. Enjoying a great course and I am going to do more work inspired by Vincent.
