So due to obvious reasons, art evening classes have been postponed. Now that I’m allowed to have some (well spaced) friends about, we’ve got together to paint and draw in my top floor studio. All very pleasant, with records played … Continue reading
Flowers, lemon and grapes. Acrylic and pencils on watercolour paper. A very busy composition with a nice mesh of textures and colours. It is supposed to look serious and not frivolous. Flower painting is not something that interests many modern … Continue reading
Painting after the event. The lack of model. Things get more plastic, colours stronger, design more obvious. The driving ideas in this work are sunlight on form, interiors and what is real in the world of the painting. Again, Matisse … Continue reading
A in the sunshine. Acrylic and pencil on paper.This work was about the full on power of the sun and what it does to colour and form. E at work. Acrylic and pencil on brown paper in a sketchbook.My youngest … Continue reading
I think this is finished with. For a while. Pensive self portrait. April 2020. Oil on canvas.Painted at different times of day, in different clothes, on different chairs (all things that were slightly unfortunate). You can tell it’s painted from … Continue reading
How quickly things can build. Since last week I have had two sessions at different times of the day. The best light is at 5pm but I’m almost always cooking for the family then. Due to a haircut (I was … Continue reading
So, what do we have here, then? Some sketches form life, some colour tests, some studies and one of the points of inspiration, a Rembrandt self-portrait.
It’s taken a while. In the next few posts I’ll show how this work came to be. Portrait of B thinking. Oil on wood. 14.02.2020. 14″ square. See details. Some real up-close details and the palette.
The Mysteries. Oil on canvas. 90cm square.I think that’s pretty much it. The ideas behind this work were:• To make something on a very red ground after doing a few paintings on very blue backgrounds• To make a work that … Continue reading
Now, this painting is still not finished. It has no title and though it has themes, they have not completely coalesced. These images are what has happened so far, after each session. The model was painted from life. See the … Continue reading
These are the workings behind a major as yet unfinished painting of a seated life model. The square canvas has been worked on for a while; in spare time, on the tube or between design jobs I’ve been making notes … Continue reading
David & Bathsheba – surely Bathsheba and David! The title is a bit of joke. Acrylic and pencil on paper.The artist in the background is called David (though no lust was involved and he is not a king), plus, the … Continue reading
Looking left No.1. Acrylic, chalk and pencil on paper. I think it was 25 minutes, plus some more on the skull of the now famous Mr. Skellington.Sitting poses need some dynamism. The chalk was added on the background to make … Continue reading
The Bewlay Brothers. Pencil and paint on paper.The title has been going around my head and seemed to fit. Some quick poses from the night. Some quick poses form the Friday before.
Remembering. Acrylic, oil washes, pencil and pastel on paper.Still trying to make the experience of the viewer more tangible. Some experiments in texture and mixed media. Heavily worked on at home, hence the title. Been looking at Michelangelo sculpture get … Continue reading
Dominic in Blue. Acrylic, pencil and pastel on paper.Another fantastic night of painting with Domininc. A very dynamic set up of easels surrounding the model.
Time & notation. Acrylics, pastels and pencils on paper. 1 hour. 30 minutes at home.The model changed the pose slightly ever 15 minutes. So it was concentrate and see what was on the paper at the end of the time. … Continue reading
