Bit of tonal glazing/ blurring to go - A whiff of Mr Balthus about this - put it up to dry - I'll get on with others and return with some boldness - Later...
Been meaning to paint this dignified old lady for a while..... went down Greatstone in stunning 1950's style evening light.
Painting is imbued with this 50's-ish feel I think .....Very limited palette - Cadmium red ground - van dyke size lay in (darks) - ochre - umber - dirty blue - pinkish hi lites - 4 hours in total
'Pocket paintings' 8x12 cm - oil on linen - Three little chubby Combis - in progress
All commissioned - waiting for bodycolour decisions.
I do really enjoy painting these 'little fellas' if anyone wants one - let me know.
