Freddy II, oil, 12x12 on panel

Here is the second painting of Freddy. This painting is done with cooler light and colors. I have several new tubes of Gamblin oil paint which I used because I wanted to try out their new colors. In this painting I used Gamblin's Portland Grey Cool, Portland grey Medium, Cool White, Portland Grey Warm, Titanium Buff, Titanium White and Warm White. I also used Terra Rosa and a cheap Paynes Gray from Winsor Newton. The background is Gamblin's Titanium Buff. I love this color. The Paynes Gray was crap so I throw the tube away. No more cheap paint. Gamblin paint is so much better I am sticking with it.

Freddy I, oil, 14x11 on panel

I took several photos of my daughter's rabbit, Freddy, while rabbit sitting him. Freddy is a beautiful silver chinchilla with black tips on his ears. Here is the first of 2 paintings I did of him this week.
