Life has become busy again as it does in September for a lot of us but I still want to keep posting so I will be doing picture posts more often. I find that people (including me) like pictures and reading a long post can take up a lot time. Anyway I have a lot of old pictures and paintings I’d like to share.
This week I am posting an old painting from my time in Edinburgh. I posted a couple of these a few months ago here . They are part of a series of studies of the Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh for oil paintings that were a part of my first solo show but the studies themselves were never shown .
This one is in acrylic paint on cold pressed watercolour paper and it is roughly A2 size. I rarely use acrylic as it dries so fast and I am used to having time to mess around with oils. As well as that I have often found the colours to be dense and flat, even the artist quality ones, compared to oils. Having said that, the brand I used here, Golden Acrylics, are a superior paint and the colours have nearly as varied a transparency as artists quality oils and their selection of colours is wonderful too with Cobalt Teal being my favourite. I think used some of it in a mix for the sky here.
