Some times I am asked what my technique entails. I thought I would walk you through the stages of a painting!
Stage one is the preparation of a canvas. I usually paint the canvas red, although you could use any colour.
I then draw on with chalk my image and then “ink” it in with a paynes grey or purple paint.
Stage two is colour blocking. I start to fill in the positive, or “foreground” first and then work in the back ground. I find this technique gives a life of its own to the image and movement.
Stage three is the finishing and developing of texture and the final varnish. I will upload a pic of that when I am done.
It is now available in print, the original has sold!
Thanks for your interest!
