This is a portrait of David Milne, Canadian painter 1882-1953. I have also included a closeup shot of the face as I just love the way his eyes are darting over to his unfinished work. This was done today using an old black and white photo as a reference. I love doing that as I am free to experiment with color and I am very pleased at the color in this painting. I tried out Gamblins Torrit Grey which is a wonderful greenish grey that mixes well with other colors. Torrit Grey is actually the residue of paint left behind on the Gamblin Artist Oil colors filtration system. Gamblin donated a tube of this color to each participating artist who attended the recent Women Artists of the West National Show in El Cajon, CA. I really enjoyed using this unique color today and will purchase another tube when this one runs out.
