Oil Painting in Progress Cowboy Vic

Here's a new painting I'm working on. Once again It began as a burnt umber pick out and I am using a limited palette. Staying real close to the zorn palette, black/blue, red cad light, yellow orchre, titanium white.
I took this photo of Victor at a party we went to at a ranch in Valley Center.
I'll post the completed painting when I finish.

I'm also working on another painting in the late 20's early 30's genere collection. So here it is.

New Paintings

I'm working on a new series of paintings. All about emotion. The first goes out to all "The Prayer". I used a very limited palette on this piece, maybe 5 colors. Started with burnt umber under painting.
The Prayer is for the world the way it is.
The next piece I'm working on and is not finished yet is "On Her Mind". I am also working with a limited palette on this one. I hope to finish this one this week and will post the finished image upon completion.
So Here they are.
