  1. I've been spending a chunk of this evening aiming on getting the balance of warm shadow versus cool light right. The scene is fairly nebulous, the forms half-formed. The next layer will be where I focus much more on developing forms, shadow and detail. I've stopped now as it's 'st
  2. Home after a trip up to Attercliffe. On the way back saw this view looking over twilight lit Sheffield (UK), and thought I'd take some shots. Glad I did. Sheffield ๐Ÿงก(more photos below)

  4. I've just finished removing all the drawing work and grid, leaving the 'inking in' outlines with this mix of cadmium red, ultramarine and titanium white stain-wash. I'm already loving the marks and the movement across the width of the canvas. For comparison, the second image is

  6. A work-in-progress, 'Go Outdoors', 50x50cm

    A work-in-progress currently sitting on my easel. I've Just finished the acrylic underpainting, with oil colour layers still to come. Looking down a misty, street lamp lit, Hill Street, here in Sheffield, with the sign of the 'Go Outside' camping store being the main focus. An e
  7. Today's update...

    I've corrected tones and trying to darken and 'tighten' up areas and forms. What do you think... is it working? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‘ #wip #whatsonmyeasel #workinprogress
  8. Today's update...

    The first of the oil colour over-painting layers. Just 2 more layers, out of a total of 9, to go ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽจ #wip #whatsonmyeasel #workinprogress
  9. The last of the underpainting layers is now complete....

    I now need to let this dry as all the underpainting is painted in acrylic. Can't wait to get started with the oil painting which will really darken the whole thing. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‘ #wip #whatsonmyeasel #workinprogress
  10. Two more underpainting layers completed ...

    I'm speeding through this one today. I've just completed the second of the two umber layers so all the forms should be making sense now. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‘ #wip #whatsonmyeasel #workinprogress
  11. Continuing on ...

    Continuing on from yesterday's drawing in, here's the next two layers showing the inking in and wash. My word is the finished painting going to be dark ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‘ #wip #whatsonmyeasel #workinprogress
  12. New painting started.

    So, here's what's newly appeared on my easel this afternoon #whatsonmyeaseltoday ... Very much the early stages of my process which hopefully will become familar to many. If you're working on something, what's on yours? #wip #whatsonmyeasel #workinprogress ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‘
  13. Meanwhile in Sheffield...

    Nothing to see here, just a cloud raining down a mf-ing rainbow ๐Ÿ˜ ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒคโ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธ #rainbow #Sheffield [Yes, I know clouds don't do that, and yes I know its rain diffracting and scattering light from the sun... but, look at it ๐Ÿ˜ ]
