STARTED THIRD OIL FOR SPRING SHOW
Three early stages of the last oil I am preparing for the Grimston Celebration of Art in April/May. I photoed them on the easel as the painting is only 8 x 20 inches and an awkward shape to photo without distortion. Its the font at Grimston church and I loved the wall colour against the dark wood of the panelling at the back, the red curtain in the corner and the font cover which is pulled by chains from the roof when the font is in use. Ive got the chains to add yet and of course all the complex detail of the carving of the cover. So there is a lot to do yet and having to use photo I took last year which unfortunately does not give me a great deal of close detail, so it will have to be dabs of paint done in my inimitable impressionist style!! Comes in handy??!! This is the photo I took and am using to guide me.
