Figure on Canvas. Acrylic on gesso’d canvas. 60 x 40cm.
Russel & Chapel always have a great bin of canvas roll ends, from which I chose this piece of canvas primed with gesso. https://www.russellandchapple.co.uk
A nice hour of painting with a fan brush and a few colours. I refrained from making any small marks by not bringing any small brushes. Yes I could make it look more finished but there is always other work to do…
Three poses, five figures. Acrylic on prepared wood. 70 x 15cm.
From left, 1. painting with my right hand (I’m very left-handed). 2 & 3. painting with only up strokes. 4 & 5. painting with both hands at once. The background gave me a chance to try out two different shades of red and an orange.
Details from the painting on wood, plus a close-up of the painting on canvas and all the works at the end of the session.
Quick life painting. Acrylic on pre-crumpled paper. Around A3.
15 minutes starting with the blue-grey and ending with the crimson.
