Madonna and Child - oil study



I've been away far too long. Welcome to all of you who have recently joined! Here is a small unfinished oil study painted last week for a larger piece I hope to work on in the coming months. Still in need of a few changes, but I feel this will be good groundwork for the final.

A Mary who looks her age. Awesome.

Beautiful! Do you make Christmas cards?

Wow! You are really learning fast from studying the 19th century masters. These colors look spot on.

I can't wait to see what the final looks like.

Thanks Maggie and Owen!
Thanks Sophie... I haven't worked much in the card industry. If I can get a few of these pieces finished I might have something to start with.
Thanks John, that's VERY encouraging to hear you say that!

awesome painting, real old shool.

Dang, man, that's lovely! I especially like the middle picture in the little process pictures you posted. But I'm always a sucker for sepia and ochre.

Keep up the painting!
