'Self Portrait Sketch' by Jim McVicker

This is a small part of a large, 36x48 inch, still life painting that I started a few days ago. I like the feel of this sketch and how it shows my working process when blocking in a painting.


  1. Thanks for sharing this, Jim. A rare treat to see a beginning placement of tonal range like this.

  2. Sometimes I like this part better than the finished painting. I'm sure your completed painting will be beautiful but still there is something so airy, fresh and true in the beginning. Thank you for posting!
