Jake II, 16" x 12", oil on linen

Jacob volunteered (for the second time) to pose in the place of a scheduled model who couldn't pose.
Short of time, coming to the session late from a meeting, my initial plan was to do a simple monochromatic oil wash painting using transparent oxide red and a little mix of viridian. But just before I was about to wipe out strong lights with Turp, I changed my mind and decided to do some "play with color" and finish it with a look of a vignette illustration.
