Rockwell master copy wip..

Hey guys!! At first I wasn't making any kind of progress on this piece but now I'm starting to crank! The problem I've been having with oil is that I was using very little paint with a lot of gamsol. I decided to start this guy with a palette knife forcing me to cake on the paint and, instead of gamasol, use Liquin to thin the paint. What a difference!!!! I feel like I'm finally starting to get a small grasp on how to paint with this oil business! This is about 5 hrs in. It should be a large/involved painting as this is still mostly a monochromatic painting and the final should be a exact copy of the painting (which has amazing subtle color all over the place). At lot more work...I'll post the final! take care,
