My first two oil
paintings are nearly ready for the final glaze.
The colour version of the pears
As you can see this is the colour version.
As this is the first oil painting i have done, i am just going to move on. I know it still needs some work. But I want to keep moving. It needs a final glaze to tie it all together.
Please note: it does look a little more patchy in the photo as it isn’t all dry yet.
The Sepia version
This is the sepia version that i am leaving in these colours. Very neutral. It needs a final glaze to get rid of the chalky white spots. Will post it when it is done.
The Next Project: – Chardin
I am copying a work by Chardin. I love the colours in this work. I didn’t realize it would be so hard until i tried painting all those elipses. Phew.
Painting in the Garden
Here i am, painting in the garden…
More on this painting next time
Here are the results from my second and third oil painting class. Please remember that these are still not finished. Also honestly trying to photograph a wet oil painting is horrible!!!
Remind me not to try again.
Here they are, I have decided to do two copies of every painting so i can really practice the techniques and improve. Hopefully.
As you can see, the photo above shows what the painting looked like before i glazed in the colour.
To do the glazes i was using liquol and transparent colours, except when i needed white for the highlights. From this first painting, i have learnt that the while can dull down and make the painting muddy. In future efforts i need to be more careful with the while paint.
Other than that, considering this is my first attempt at oils in class, i think this is a good start. There are still many more layers to go on the pears yet however. Will keep you posted on how it goes.
Here is my first efforts at my first oil painting lesson. It is burnt umber, raw sienna and white on a canvas board.
It is an underpainting and will be done in colour eventually.
