Having done quite a lot of sketches and substantial drawings towards the projects involving figure work, I feel more confident and the painting is going reasonably well so far.
Am finding that I work far better if swift and not laboriously because over painting deadens the painting.
Must remember to keep the whole painting going to keep balance, contrast and harmony.
Am also finding that keeping the brush strokes loose and tones and colours well matched that the visual statements are, paradoxically, more precise!
Am enjoying this work and the prep drawing ever since I have widened my language of drawing using the Mick Maslen book of contemporary drawing AND am working with a contemporary drawing group and several professional artists at The Lowry in Salford.
