Self Portrait 11-29-12 - Zorn Palette

Did this quick self portrait this morning before work. About an hour painting time. Used a Zorn type palette of Ivory Black, Golden Ochre, Quinacridone Red, and Titanium White. I like working with this limited palette. Very rich looking colors.

Guthrie study

I think this is the final on this study of Old Willie, A Village Worthy (1886) by James Guthrie. Guthrie was a member of a group of painters from Scotland known as the Glasgow Boys.

This is charcoal on paper approximately life size.
