Aaron (SJ18-10), oil on canvas, 36"x36". Copyright © Sam Jennings. All rights reserved. Aaron (SJ18-10) An original 36″x36″ oil painting I created in 2018. Inspired by Elvis, the painting displays bright colors and markings on a bold character’s face, depicting cultural markings and lines from some faraway fantasy society or tribe. Paint In Progress These images show the progress of how this painting came together. I started with a black outline, followed by several layers of oil paint. Several layers of color add depth and shape. Finally I painted in the details, highlights, and shading. I’ve been very interested in mosaic patterns and waves of color.
