This is Archie, the same Archie from below! No 46 of 49. oil on board 7″x7″
“Maggi” 7″x7″ oil on board
Painted with Burnt Sienna ground to see if it speeds up process. There’s obviously less need to fill the gaps, no white to battle against. I think it made for a freer and less tense hour!
I have started this project for the upcoming 2018 Open Studios Weekend at the Courtyard Studios in Irvine.
49 portraits on 7″x7″ boards, each taking 49 minutes to paint.
This means just under two per day till Oct 4th. It’s doable, yet a bit mad to commit to such folly!
It’s a cure for procrastination and a great way to keep learning.
This is number 6 with 43 to go.
A great weekend at the Courtyard Studios. The weather was good despite the forecast and the place was busy both days. Most of the artists stayed back to present Margaret with a wee drink and a bunch of flowers to say thanks for being studio rep for seven years. That’s me with a dozy smile at the left hand side!
Inside the Wasps studio for the Open Weekend. The paintings are down and on their way back to North Ayrshire Museum. I resisted the temptation to repaint the annoying bits while I had them.
