Hi everyone. It's been a while since I have painted. Yesterday I got out my brushes and did this portrait of Darth Vader. This was my first time painting on linen. Usually I use canvas. I probably will never use canvas again now. Linen is awesome to paint on. I used a lot of blues and cool colors so I thought I'd give it some contrast with the warm burgundy eyes. I am pretty happy with how this turned out.
Since the painting is still wet it was hard to photograph. Some of the colors are slightly off. I will probably scan this when it's dry and it will be truer to life.
