Bice Portrait Final by tomfluharty Bice Portrait Final by tomfluharty
Here is the final portrait I did based on the 'Dutch Flemish' oil painting technique. This is after the color and adjustment stages to finish. It was a lot of fun painting this.

Title: Bice
Medium: Traditional Oils

For those interested, I will be teaching an oil painting class focusing on the 'Dutch Flemish' technique on SCHOOLISM.com starting April 15, 2010.

This is brilliant, Tom.
The broken highlights on the nose are amazing.

Amazing translucent skin quality.
I would love to see this technique used on a more attractive subject.
It may be that the original artists were inspired by the perfect skin
of a baby.

This method shows a remarkable resemblence to this photo.
Am i the only person to find this beautiful?

Just watched the interview Bobby had with you. And I can understand why you love working the way you do. I've been staring at this off and on for about an hour. This portrait just pops off my screen. I can only imagine what the original is like. Great work. It's easy to say I believe this will influence my paintings somehow.

Beautiful! I love all of the temperature changes. The eyes and nose pop out of the canvas so beautifully.

Interesting that the inner parts like Nose,Eyes, Mouth
are very Sharp and the outlines of the Face has a little blurring Effect.

Is it bacause you´ve want to Paint it like that or has ist also to do with the Dutch Flemish Techique ?

its a technique used to give that bifocal effect...many painters use it, not just the Dutch Flemish. Why Tom here uses it here only he can answer i suppose, but regardless its extremely well done, very well sculpted, Tom!
