Oil paints Alla-prima portrait Betty Compson



Hi Ho people, I hope your all doing fine. Heres my next installment in the wonderful world of oil alla-prima portraits of silent actresses. Meet the lovely Betty Compson. There are just some paintings that seem to paint themselves and this was one of them. I loved the white skin against the dark blue background, along with the mountain of hair that was the style back then.

I’ll be doing about two or three more of these and when the paint dries I’ll coat them with a layer of matt fixative and will be selling these on Ebay, but that will be about at the end of August.

Thanks for looking in,
