• Sandy - Red Chair

    Portrait now complete after a late shift last night. It’s never ideal to work till the small hours, but it has to go to the framers today in time for entry into North Ayrshire’s Open in 10 days time. I will enter this portrait along with the charcoal of Amy and Megan, below.

    The handling of the paint is rougher than usual but it is indicative of where I want to go with portraiture for a while. I got a bit tighter at the bottom right hand corner and the hand itself (Sandy’s left). This was the late night, last minutes bit, which which I would like to have given more consideration if time allowed.

    Next time, I will try and keep the quickness of strokes with a more fluid application. There are some dry scumble areas I would like to change a little. I am pleased with the direction it’s going in. One thing I must tackle is work ethic! Still too slow.(easily distracted) (Tired old tale)
