A little tough this one and we battled through it in class. The aim was to break down a pretty complex scene into large areas of similar value to create a good value design but keeping it representational.
For anyone interested there’s a video of the final stages.
Don’t let anyone ever tell you painting is relaxing. I’ve been suffering a bit of mojo deflation recently and nothing has been coming out well. Until today that is!
This is a scene of the
Grist Mill in Sudbury
which was built as an ‘improved’ mill by Henry Ford (yes that one) in 1924. After spending some time on site earlier this year I’ve held off painting a full painting as I wasn’t sure how to attack such a traditional scene. But I think it came out pretty well. Very happy and the mojo is restored.
