God So Loved
by Jason Peck
14X18, Oil on Canvas Board
I used my usual palette of colors. I painted nearly all the flesh tones with these colors: Flake White, Yellow Ochre Pale, Alizarin Crimson Permanent, Raw Umber, and Ultramarine Blue. For this painting I used Gamsol, and M. Grahams Walnut Alkyd. I also used allot of Raw Umber for the drawing, because it dries fast.
Initially all of the figures in this painting where drawn from my imagination, but I eventually asked some friends to model for me to make them seem a bit more lifelike. This would have been a much better painting if I had started with models to begin with. I plan on repainting this one day on a larger smoother surface, and next time Ill draw everything from life.
