New Work Update

That last couple of weeks I have completed these two drawings and this painting:
'Relaxing After A Hot Day'
watercolour and gouache
24 x 31cm

This scene was a joy to paint. Having found a lovely tree (possibly Birch?) over hanging the river Marden, 5 minutes walk from my back door, I knew I just had to paint it. I took a brisk walk during twilight and came back with a collection of photographs that would inform all of the composition. Add to that some reference of me posing in a waistcoat and trousers, and I couldn't fail.

'The Owl and the Pussy-cat'
I'm underway with the painted version of this sketch. It will be my latest nursery rhyme illustration for Art Of The Imagination.
'Summer Evening Walk'
These likely lads will soon be painted quite large (39 x 51cm) for Galerie Daniel Maghen.

Don't forget, this Saturday and Sunday are the last two days of my open studio at Avant-Garde Art Supplies, Calne, SN11 0HY. Click here for details.

How long does it take you to complete the painting once you have sketched it?

Chris Dunn said...

40 - 50 hours depending on how detailed it is. For large paintings your talking 80 - 100 hours.
