Don’t overdo that colour…..

Uncategorized

This fox, with it’s surprised expression just had to be painted….    The work is essentially a pencil illustration with one and two (depending on the depth of colour required) light coats of watercolour applied as I saw fit.

My thanks goes to the wonderful French photographer, #MoNikon, ( look her up on facebook) who so kindly, gave me permission to paint her marvellous portrait of this young fox.     Please enjoy and come, if you can, to my Free Art Class on the 6th November, held at my Breton Atelier, where you will be shown how to draw and paint your own, personal Christmas Cards and where absolute enjoyment will be enjoyed by all……..Fox a

The locally made vase was the focal point for this large watercolour, that I filled with berries, ivy leaves and “supported” on a colourful cloth, prior to painting.   Artist’s wtercolours and rag watercolour paper were used in this work, which is available.AutumnBerries.jpg

Another useful tip for oil painters.

Purists probably will throw up their hands in horror, but I have found that by painting the back of a finished fully dry) oil painting, with a low grade matt white acrylic paint, that (a) it taughtens up the canvas and (b) it reduces the porosity of the canvas, thus giving the artwork a more luminiscent appearance.

I wish you and all your family a most Happy, Prosperous, Healthy and Safe 2018 and would be delighted if you could join me at one of my popular Open Days, here in beautiful Brittany.
