Past & Present (SLG x2). Acrylic, pencil and oil on prepared paper. 100 x 70cm.
The initial painting was in acrylic, then overpainted in oils thinned with liquin. Again the feeling of the models presence was important. Oil paint gives a greater depth and lustre. In the background is an old canvas of the model, put on in the last 30 minutes of work on the painting.
Figure in the studio (SLG). Acrylic, pencil and oil on prepared paper. 100 x 70cm.
I liked the cool, dry quiet atmosphere and the play of what was in focus and what fades from view. The painting balances in an interesting way.
