At the beginning of the life painting session each week we start with a series of quick studies. The three above were done in watercolour on cartridge paper. The smooth surface of the cartridge paper is not absorbent and the watercolour tends to float on the surface creating a fluid effect. It is a cheap way of making these quick studies without spending a lot of money on expensive watercolour paper. The image below is the finished oil sketch on canvas board which took one and a half hours.

the last few months as the summer has not been very good here and it has been difficult to get out to paint. I have been revisiting this material as my work has changed since the sketchbook was first created, The inspiration for this came from a request to do a talk on my painting style and a demonstration at a local library. The painting was three quarters finished at the library and completed back at my studio. It measures 12" 16" and is oil on canvas-board.
