These last few paintings either have too little chroma or too much. Something I plan to do myself is paint a bunch of brown eggs and try to nail the colors, which should help when painting skin. Are you using the same palette of colors for all of these?
yah, I've been struggling with the oils the couple of weeks .. think it's from spreading myself too thin working with pastels and acrylics at the same time. The last two portraits I used titanium white, yellow ochre, venetian red, and payne's gray. the few before those were done with various combinations of colors though still limited to 5 or less colors plus white.
EDIT: gonna add this too
Built another pochade box, well actually, a small prototype to determine the feasibility of a larger version. This prototype is primarily for 5 x 7 1/8 inch panels. It measures 8.5 x 7.25 x 1.5 inches and weighs around one pound, maybe 2. And it will hold 2 wet panels in the lid with 3/16 inch separation.

all your stuffs are very good~ anyway, are u a korean? ? You have same last name with me.
These are very nice, but don't be afraid to push your color palette a bit further, some of your portraits seem to be dominated by just a few simple tones, thus, causing them to look flat.
thanks Nightblue, Sandeepbarot, Matt, and Mitch
Matt: No, not Korean, I'm chinese
Mitch: I have been playing around with a variation of the Zorn palette (venetian red instead of cad red) on most of the paintings and not having a whole lot of success with it. I do a lot using photo refs which doesn't help much either, all the lights are lighter and the darks darker .. plus, my camera skills are pretty much non-existant
Finally got back to my WIP, here is a couple of progress shots ... got a long way to go ... the first one was the initial sketch that was previously posted. The second one is where I made some adjustments to the anatomy and just putting on the first layer in the last one.
Update to my WIP .. still deciding what to do with the foreground so please ignore the colors I slapped on there for the time being
plus a couple quick ones while watching the paint dry

wow it has been 1.5 years since I posted, didn't realize that I have been gone that long ...
Anyhow, here is one I just did of a Concept Art forum member, Spaztastic, from an image posted in the lounge. It's a small 1.5 hour oil study on masonite, 7 x 5
Welcome back man.
