Value studies today for a large painting of Marlborough Baptist Church. I’ve done a tighter view of this before. The shape of the building is so interesting and I love the view through to it from Main Street that I wanted to give it another go.
This is a demo painting of the wonderful Leo. I’m working with someone who wants to do a series of 3 paintings of Leo and this is the first. It’s great fun and I’m especially pleased with that bow tie.
A surprisingly taxing workshop with
painting a colored sphere in oil. A lot of time spent mixing which went fairly well but my skills in blending oils are definitely in need of work.
The ever wonderful
Paul Foxton’s Threads
workshop today. And we were doing a Christmas bauble which was insanely hard. Having tried a few baubles last week in watercolor I dug out the oils for this and it definitely made things a little easier.
Here’s the reference photo – tricky yes?
Well it did snow last night and I always like to paint snowmen.
