Lockdown challenge update 2

posted in: General Art News 0

Well we're past the first week of lockdown and I've got quite a few photos to show you. As well as the paintings I've been doing, I've got pictures from Paul, Julia, Julie and Janet. If anyone else would like to join in, please do send me photos - it's great receiving messages with photos of what you've been up to.

I'm still enjoying the sketches - I've used charcoal in quite a few of these. I'm trying a new technique of blocking in the dark areas and then working over to bring the images out. I tried that technique on my oil sketch too.

The under painting for the traditional still life's took quite a while but now the fun begins with colour. The first day I gave the whole pictured a Cadmium Yellow glaze. Today I went over with a glaze of Prussian Blue and a bit of white to pick out the highlights.
