In this week’s live studio chat I share my newest large modern oil paintings
This week’s live studio chat from my studio at Delta House studios here in London shows my newest large modern oil paintings. I discuss the painting processes I used and the paint decisions I had to make while creating these latest paintings.
There are four new paintings in total and I’m really pleased with the results. I work organically when making a painting. Without the use of photographs or a pre-planned painting on an iPad for instance, sometimes the paintings don’t work or are not successful. It’s been a while since I painted large scale and was a little nervous about how these paintings would turn out.
For me, they are successful because they ask the viewer’s eye to roam in and around the canvas. This is achieved through layers of paint, techniques such as masking tape and charcoal blurring as well as rubbing and playing with the paint as it’s applied. If that sounds a little confusing then just watch the video below.
Excuse my messy studio walls as I appreciate they can be a little distracting when viewing work. When making a painting I rely on my studio walls a lot to work out paint marks, shapes and to clean my brushes- they’re rather important to my painting process!
Once photographed these paintings will be available via my website or you can pop me a DM on the gram here if you prefer. Please let me know if you are interested in painting or have any questions, thanks for your interest in my work and for watching!
