A SMALL SELECTION OF FIGURE STUDIES IN OIL AND WATERCOLOUR

The figure studies shown in this post represent a small selection from the winter period 2014/15. The two images of Marge above were done on the same evening from the same position of the same pose. Top is a very free watercolour painted with fluid brush strokes and below is a watercolour and gouache on blue paper. It is interesting to note how the mediums influence the outcome.
I like colour and the red chair in the oil painting of Rebecca above sets off her skin tones giving a sense of drama. It also provides an opportunity for a different composition. 
The four images above feature clockwise from top left: An oil of Marge on a tinted background. a watercolour of Jessica, an oil of Rebecca and another watercolour of Jessica kneeling.

THE NORTH NORFOLK COAST.

I had the opportunity recently to make a brief return visit to the north Norfolk coast; one of my favourite places to paint; big skies, interesting buildings. I only had time to do a couple of paintings: Storm clouds over Burnham Overy Staithe 30.5cm x 41cm (12"x 16") and White Sails in a Sea of Green (Cley Windmill) 25cm x 36cm (10"x 14")
