Painting Techiques

This is some experimentation with different paints. For the first piece, the left side is done with egg tempera and the right side is done with encaustics. It's a nice little comparison between really tight and loose techniques. All three poses were based off the same model and are all on one massive piece of masonite.

For the second piece, I did a reproduction of Ghirlandaio's "portrait of an old man with young boy." It is also egg tempera on masonite.

Oh and yes, the old man's nose is disgusting...
