Here's the set up
First stage....developing the composition on the board, spilling over onto frame.
Starting to block in color
Oil on framed board, 8.25"x8.25" (outside dimension of frame)
I love spilling over on to the frame when painting with Oils. Changes the feel of a piece.....a picture within a picture so to speak. It's easy to tell my light source here is from above. The camera just doesn't give this piece justice. Looks much better in life.
