Part 2 - Oil painting

Back at Arlington Court again this week, and I managed to, mostly, complete the painting.   

The space I get to use in the Visitor reception area is very good, I can set up my easel with room to add my folding table (for paints/brushes etc), plus the tripod for my iPhone to video.  

Light, natural light, is a major factor for me, and if I turned my easel to face the window, then visitors wouldn't see what I'm painting!   I compromised and semi-turned the easel.  Even so, this week there wasn't really enough light, but I kept going.  People did say how they liked the painting and had spotted it from across the room, so I guess everything worked out in the end.  The only thing I will say, is the video didn't pick up as well as the previous session (Part 1 video), so please allow for this when you watch this video....

As ever, click the image below, and I hope you enjoy what essentially had been around 4 hours painting, speeded up into about 13 minutes.

Thanks Robin…..Yes, nearly done. I’ll set this aside to dry for a couple of weeks, then take a look at it with fresh eyes. Hopefully not much to do, just some highlights and dark tones should bring it to completion.
