Back to basics. Drawn on Samsung Galaxy note 8
A demo for New Cunninghame Art Club tonight. A painting of Cafe by the Station in Saltcoats. Painted in oils on canvas, 50cm x 50cm. A cracking victorian building right bang in the middle of town.
I started from top to bottom, quickly blocking in the sky and tentatively putting in the roof and chimneys. At this stage, I could see I was already being too cautious. I speeded up and chucked the paint on and everything seemed to liven up as I progressed. Carefully carefree.
A watercolour exercise that borrows from Elizabeth Blackadder. A simple nature painting from life. A bit of dead stem from the garden; a daff, a lily and another flower(?) from the shops; and a budding stem also from the garden.
A semi-botanical job, kind of randomly arranged. I would like to put in more to fill the space but there is enough here , I suppose, to get the gist of the exercise.
This is for you, Thursday group!
