Back to Landscape Painting

With all this life drawing distraction I wanted to keep my feel of landscape painting alive and painted a house I pass every day while out with Tanzie. It was done in stages at the school to show some 12th grade students one way of underpainting, blocking in and then adding layers until finished, Meant to be a study and done in around two hours…. here goes…..

Walking Tanzie does seem to be a time of contemplation, one morning this week I took a photo and by the afternoon I’d finished a 50 x 70 cm oil painting! It was a lot of fun and I used techniques to splash paint around in the foreground. I used a lot of Vasari oil paints in this one and had to admit being blown away by the buttery quality and massive amount of pigment in these paints! Amazing…
