Oils on Canvas
Several weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to an Oil Painting Workshop led by Lee Burrows at the Rothersthorpe Art Group a small village in Northamptonshire. I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot and have been using the oils every since. This painting is of three ink pots that my husband Ian has dug up over the years and have lived on a shelf in my studio. I’ve wanted to paint/draw them for ages and thought I’d give it a go in oils which is not my usual medium. I had a printing plate which I folded in half to make a floor and back wall for the subject. I then lit it from the left with an anglepoise lamp and photographed it. I then worked from this image using the fantastic reflections on the plate to create what I think is an interesting painting. I hope you agree and would appreciate your comments.
