Oil Sketch



After working from life for a few hours, I got this far. Now, of course I can see all kinds of things wrong with it! The whole thing needs to be repainted.

Painting can be a bit like writing. Sometimes you just have to get a draft down, not worrying too much about perfection. Later you begin to edit.
