Because of the furniture etc in the House itself at Arlington Court, I'm not able to paint a scene there in person, so I do the next best thing and take photographs and copius sketches.
As you see from this photo, there's a lot of information to get,
so I simplified it
A few lines, down to basic forms
Setting out colour and tones by 'blocking in'
The final painting
As with all paintings, lessons are learned and I would actually approach this painting slightly differently another time. I intend to keep this painting to look back on in the future and see how my "Interior Paintings" progress. I'm always wanting to move on my skill level and push myself with technique, it's all an adventure.
