Millenium View

I have recently joined the ‘Tunbridge Wells Outdoor Art Club’ for landscape painting. Today we had our first delayed outing from last week to the ‘Millenium View’ near Matfield. I have met a superb two great experienced painters who also are very nice people. We enjoyed a super warm day painting with little picnic on site. If you live in our area and want to join us on one of our future outing, please drop me a line.

Croc in the making

We learn in our evening class from Karen Birt our teacher which is a great artist herself, about Cartoons, the subject was wild life. It is adaptation of a traditional technique for transferring a line drawing to a support. Used by masters like Chardin and George Stubbs for the animals. You simply make small holes with a needle on the main lines which give you accurate shapes you transfer it with charcoal and later paint it up. This one is an oil paintings.

Croc

Palette Knife return

I just returned from a superb painting holiday in France which I’ll soon write about. I missed you all..

The name of this post sound like a horror movie name.. Mind you it is only our action in Oil evening class. Yet again we had to paint with no brushes and the palette knife turn to be my friend. Karen said that the finish paintings remind her Paul C├ęzanne… I was not so sure it was but took the great compliment. Enjoy.

The view from The window

Some time ago I have started painting the view from my class window looking outside in Oil. I never finished it and always felt that something was missing but was not sure what. The other day I saw a picture of a cat and decided that’s it, I need to add the cat somehow to my unfinished window’s picture and now I have done it… I think ‘Pussycat View’ is ready. OK at least in my view…
