"Aprilesque" Mixed Media Portrait Painting In Oil and Beeswax

Here is a portrait painting of a girl.  I was going for a tonal painting.  I wanted it to almost look like a graphite and charcoal drawing.  I added texture to my 12x12 wood panel with beeswax.  I then did the portrait painting with oil paint.  I used a dry brush technique on the face. I mostly use water mixable oil and combined with the dry brushing they were dry the next day. I applied thicker paint to the flowers.  The green eyes and hat give it a boost of color.

Thanks for visiting!

Peace to you!
