Only An Hour In The Studio
Had to go to the dentist today, so not much time for painting. However, I still managed to get into the studio and do a little bit of experimenting.
I want to finish this oil painting that I started in December.
Bracken Field in progress.
Didn't have enough time to start in oils, and I don't feel clear about what I want to do to take this further. I just know it needs a bit more work. So I figured I should do some playing about and practising, thinking about the mark-making and the colour before I go back into the picture.
Today with my hour in the studio, I managed to do this black and white study.
Bracken Field Study
I used graphite, white conte, rubbed out then added more graphite, PVA and acrylic. Shall return to this exercise later in the week....Must get it finished in time for our exhibition!
