Here’s a quick insight into how I started a recent commission.
Thinned raw umber is used to sketch out the perspective and general mapping of the composition.
I worked from photos I took on site to complete the detail, most of the photo was obstructed by the large apple tree, so a bit of artistic pruning has taken place!
Happy client, so I’m off to the framers.
It’s been a busy summer, but now it’s time to go back into the studio for some autumnal creativity…
