Boy painting for Marina


“Boy painting for Marina”
40cm x 50cm (16″ x 20″) Oil on W&N canvas texture paper 300gsm.
This is a painting I did for , one of my students as part of the art class.
I do the first portrait, we share the second one, by me doing the difficult bits and the student the easier. Finally the student will do the third and I only intervene as necessary.
This is the stage that can take either a short or a long time, depending on the person. My goal is to see a degree of autonomy in the student. This may or may not include a personal style showing yet, rather a base upon which he/she can grow further. Guidance is still necessary but that varies with the individual too.

“Toddler study”
40cm x 50cm (16″ x 20″) Oil on W&N canvas texture paper 300gsm.
As part of my objective to,

  1. Gain back the time spent without painting, and
  2. Create a ready to show portfolio of works to use as a guideline
  3. Not use storage space, therefore a canvas pad became ideal.
