Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 9

Today’s painting was the hardest so far, for two reasons. I had to paint ellipses with complex parts, and my shoulder really hurts. Precision in painting comes at a cost of sometimes maintaining stress positions, and lately I’ve been getting

Allegro, Day 4

Today’s work on the Allegro was mostly making good on my promises from last time. I had solved most of the problems by the end of day 3, in that I knew where the boat was, what colour the sea

Dragons: Day 4 – the rocks

Day 4 was a faintly annoying day. I had to mix a blue that was darker than the colour out by the entrance, as if the yellow had been removed as the sunlight faded. However, there was not any yellow

Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 8

Dragons: Day 2a – Really Boring Underpainting

Today’s ‘fun’ was putting the undercolour onto a canvas for my dragon painting. It’s the colour of a big chunk of the painting itself, and the part that I will want to do roughly. This means that any breaks I

Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 7

This was a day that started at 12pm and ended at 6pm, so not an entire working day, but close to one. I spent the earlier part of the day mixing paint and then discarding the paint mixes. Some skills
