Wyoming Ram: oil painting mini-demo

Ram©2010C.L.Burgess oil on cradled wood 16 x 16



Blogger Gary Keimig offered this photo for a challenge. What a nice respite from the human forms and faces I have been painting for my upcoming shows.
I thought some of you might like another small in process. Total time on this one which is larger was about 6 hours give or take. I find I like animal portraits as well. This was done with a limited palette of earth red, earth yellow, prussian blue, cad red, white. No medium. Part palette knife part brush after a quick and fixed underdrawing in conte.
Gary is posting others in case you haven't seen them yet. All are pretty fantastic. Thanks, Gary!
