oil sketch

I was setting up my new studio and came across this preliminary oil sketch for a portrait.  I thought it worth putting an image up as it combines post modern aspects with some more traditional technical aspects.  The form is created through fractured planal shapes and they visually stack to create volume.  The effect of the red/brown field is to render it into a countershading, which both implies tone into the planes and defines a silhouette – an aspect of edge process.
