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!
