There’s a few paintings I’m working on at the moment. This is being made at the Mary Ward Centre.
Pencil study of R with JT painting him. Pencil, acrylic and oil paint on paper.
I decided to make a realistic drawing. The colour was put on later, in an experimental manner.
Pencil study 2. R with paint brushes. Pencil and oil paint.
A strong pose. Again, trying to make a base for later decisions. Below are sketches and a photo from the same night
Preparing the canvas. I’ve painted over an old portrait in gesso and then oil paint. From red to blue.
