Skull Number 3 (repost)

Happy Halloween! This is a repost from May, but I thought it fitting for the day...

Skull No 3,  oil on linen, 5" X 7", 2013
$125 USD framed

Palette and lighting set up

Initial block in. If you squint, you can see that I've established three main value groups. I started with the darkest value for the shadow part of the skull (which you can see in the picture above this one)-- which is also my middle value in this case.

I've now filled in the lightest values. While there will be lots of refinement in the drawing, and the addition of a few darker darks and highlights, the main value structure is complete.

Another subject matter piece stolen from Mr. Keiser, who has painted the subject many times. Including in this terrific video.

I last painted this a while back, as seen here. Its not actually a ball, but rather a mirror ornament...
