small study piece

A couple of weeks ago i conducted my first oil painting was designed for absolute beginners in oils and was an attempt to de-mystify the medium for the starter painter and by the end of the day hopefully have a good grasp of the basics and maybe even splodge a little paint about.During the day i used this little off-cut of mdf lying around in the studio to demonstrate some of the techniques.The uppermost photo here shows the painting of a lemur as it stood at the end of the workshop and today whilst other larger pieces are drying i thought i'd finish off the underpainting.The image measures only 8" x 7" and it is quite a treat to work on something swiftly with loose brushes,something i may continue to do between larger works.
