Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Having been involved in art my entire life and as life goes I was pulled away from art as I followed my career in the USMC. This career ended after I was wounded. Due to my service and suffering from PTSD I have been drawn back to my art as a form of therapy. I had two good friends pose for this piece and others. It is done in oils and as you can see is a project in the works. I hope that you like it... Open to any suggestions as I am a self taught artist with some bad habits I guess the pros would call them... Lol. Thank you for taking a look. Thank you... Paint on. What are you most proud of? My two friends that volunteered to pose for me. They took time out of Thier lives to assist me with mine. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Every artist had Thier own style... Thus sees things in a unique way... Thus though the subject may be the same two artists will paint it in two very distinctly different ways.
