Oil studies


Hot sunny day, so nothing better than to creep inside and miss the sun in pursuit of painting.

One of those phases where I revisit different techniques in preparation for a series of figurative works examining ambiguity in daily life, and what better subject than the one which greets me unsmiling most days?

    • It was on primed drawing paper, with a red ochre wash, and then basically a grisaille under painting. The actual painting then took about 15 or 20 minutes, Mix of wet in wet and glazes. Glad you like it!

    • I’ve always worked very rapidly, actually, but I do find that even the quickest most basic under painting then allows for a very easy fast painting with minimal colours and brushwork. It’s worth setting a time limit and just go for it!
