Oil paint

Painted in 2019

Original and prints not for sale.

"Tiegan" was the first oil painting that I completed. I started painting with oils in 2019, and began two pieces (that are still works-in-progress) before I started this commission. I used palette knives in this piece to capture a more impressionist and exaggerated style. This painting took me about a month to complete. I use student-grade oil paints, which dry fairly quickly. This helped me to layer paint for texture and get clearer colors.
