I just finished a new painting – 33 weeks. This painting is oil on board, I did it very differently to how I have previously painted and enjoyed it immensely.
I’ve posted some of the developmental sketches and the beginnings of this painting: here.
What is different about this is it is from life and from memory. I did a sitting with the model and developed most of this painting with the sketches and my memory from that sitting. I took some photos for a buffer – but I in no way relied on the photographs like I have in previous works.
