The Archer / ORION

The Archer / ORION. Oil on canvas. 75 x 75 cm.
Painted over two life sessions with the model at the fabulous Mary Ward Centre, two sessions preparing the canvas, sketches, a session painting the fabric and four further sessions, finalising the work in my studio. The use of layering in oils was used with a 50/25/25 oil paint to liquid and zest or refined linseed oil. This adds to the perceived depth, complexity and richness that would be impossible in acrylics.

Some details showing the two hunting dogs (Canis Major and Minor), The stars of Orion with the trail of an arrow / comet, Some close-ups and my signature.

A small selection of the research material.
