Demo – town centre


irvine-coop-building-demoA demonstration today for HAC class.

This is an exercise showing perspective, enhanced colour and simplification of detail.

Demo time was restricted to 2hrs but probably I had 1 1/2 hours of painting. The idea was to show a sketchy, almost cartoony style of painting which is decorative and not beholden to photographic realism. I painted a similar demo a couple of weeks ago shown in an earlier post. I wanted to bring the style into the town, an ordinary town and make a colourful image from an urban photograph. Most members of the group paint from photos so this helps to see a photo as a painting, I hope.

This is Irvine on the south west coast of Scotland.
