Posted on Mar 22, 2015 in Concept Art, Latest Work, Paintings, Portfolio, Work in Progress



Portrait painting in oils of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy based on the 1995 T.V drama production of Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice..

For this painting I used acrylic yellow ochre and Burnt umber for the first 3 drawing-in stages shown as they dry very quickly, then I worked in oils.

Oil Palette:

Ivory black= W+N Alkyd, Yellow Ochre= Michael Harding, Burnt Sienna =Michael Harding, Mixing white= W+N Alkyd, Cadmium Red W+N artists (small amounts).

Ivory black is a very slow dryer so I used Alkyd based Oil colour for this to speed up the process.
