Buddy - a portrait sketch

Portrait of Buddy

Buddy. 12x12, oil on linen panel. 2015

Started the morning by finishing up this painting of Buddy.  It was painted using the customer's own photos as a reference.  I tried to paint the whole thing in a loose style and integrate the body into the background as much as possible. The palette is ultramarine blue, burnt umber, burnt sienna and yellow ochre plus a little bit of alizarin crimson used at the end.
