View from The Talbot Inn - Part 2

A bit of work in progress today, I’ve got the masking fluid on and am just starting to apply some colour. I’ll work over the whole image like this, adding the basic colours and some texture and lines. Then I’ll do a ‘final’ pass, intensifying some colours, knocking some back, adding a few shadows and any extra lines and splatters as needed. Then the masking fluid comes off and depending on the look of things at that point, it’ll either be finished or I’ll work into the lines a little. Anyway, so far so good :)

On another note here’ a link to a culture show special about the summer exhibition, interesting to see what gets in…and now I know we need to look for the letter ‘D’ on the back of Susans picture to know if it did get through the first round…I’ll buy you a pint if it did ;)

View from The Talbot Inn - Part 1

I’ve drawn this very faintly with a 2H pencil, so the drawings not that clear when photographed, but I thought I’d blog it anyway. It’s a view from the decking at the Talbot Inn in Eynsham.

Following on from the last painting of the Square and some discussions in the pub with Lorna and Susan, I’m pushing the perspective quite a bit further in this one. It’s taken the best part of a day to get it all worked out…it’s SO much easier doing something realistic lol…as soon as you pull the angles around in one area you need to balance them elsewhere…lots of rubbing out and refining things but I’m finally happy with the layout…need to add about a gallon of masking fluid now ;)

Cards of Eynsham

I’ve had some cards of the three swirling Eynsham paintings printed up and they arrived this morning…they’ve come out really well, so I’m very pleased with them :) They’ll be on sale at the summer exhibition in the Bartholomew Rooms 4th – 12th July. £2.50 each. If you can’t get to the exhibition but would like some just drop me an email.

Right, off to paint another ;)

Eynsham Square part 1

Starting on another swirling painting of the square for the art group summer exhibition in the village. Got the drawing done the other day, so I thought I’d post it at this halfway stage…depending on the weather I may get the painting done tomorrow…watch this space ;)
