23rd May 2021 – Start of Geesje Kwak – the Oil Painting

I consider my previous drawing Geesje Kwak – 10-05-21 (sold) a success and that is why I started an oil painting last week. I haven been struggling with the exact resemblance the last days and I think I am beginning to capture her finally. It is the first setup though. Much more work to do to beat this work in progress to perfection.

cubist portrait oil painting work in progress

Many more things to complete still: the cubist styling of the kimono and perhaps the implementation of a bigger, underlying theme. Who knows?
