Hello everyone this is my first time, so bear with me. I have started my painting of Ms Booth and I thought you might be interested in the way I work. So, to quote Frank, this is my way.
Having badly sketched Sarah, I then photographed her. I then play about a bit on the PC, mix up some images and get an idea of how I want it to look. (Fig 1). Then I sketch again (fig 2) before transferring to canvas. I will underpaint in acrylic before setting out with the delicious oils. Utterly madness, time consuming but I kind of get it all wrong unless I do this.
Also attached is the still unfinished Martha etc .
Oh golly, everything is in the wrong place!!! Sharon you'll have to give me a lesson.
See you all in a mo.
