Once again with speeding

Another single session portrait, about 2 hours. Working with some new brushes, and colors. A bit more deliberate in approach (at least for me).

Most of my painting in the last year has been with water soluble oil paint. There are times when I miss acrylics, especially when painting two colors next to each other that I don't want to mix at all (very different values and colors that I want to be separate). Acrylics do tend to stay put and it's easy to paint right over something almost immediately.. Not so with oils! Hence the wiping out and repainting or the layers of glazing. The upside of oils is the blending and mixing, which I am just starting to appreciate and play with.  Aloha!
