ST NICHOLAS CHAPEL WORKSHOP OIL PAINTING

At long last I have found time to get on with my oil painting of the West Norfolk Artists Workshop at St Nicholas Chapel in Kings Lynn to make a pair with the Rehearsal I painted earlier. I have used the same colours as before but created the piece much lighter.

Blocking in stage:

This next image is where I got to yesterday and, as you can see, I still have the painting on the right hand panel to create and straighten up the nude painting. It turned out to be one of my dear friend Sandra's acrylic paintings of Becketts Chapel in Wymondham. Amusingly, she has offered to come over and paint it again into my painting for me!!

nearly finished: Thought you'd like to see the pair together I photo'd a few days ago, as they were propped up side by side in my little studio room. As you can see, very different lighting. I am really enjoying adding figures to my work after many years.
Rehearsel and Workshop side by side:

Don't forget to enlarge images for detail.

What a stunning pair of paintings! I especially how you have painted the floor with such great reflections. I wish I could add figures like this in my paintings...congratulations on beautiful work!

Thanks for your lovely cocmments Cori and Christiane. I have loved painting inside churches for years as I especially enjoy working on the stone floors and the way the lighting from all directions creates such glorious reflections of colour.

Looking fabulous!

Joan, just wondering if the perspective on the top of the art display boards is right? shouldn't the angle go up more on the top line so as to appear getting larger towards the viewer?
Hope that makes sense LOL!

A lovely pair, indeed! What a great idea, and well executed. I like that they are different enough to be interesting; so many coupled paintings are almost identical and boredom sets in. Yours are fun to view and compare; what are the plans for them upon completion?

Thanks Anita - checked my references and, although slight, you are so right. Thanks pal - only take me 5 mins to correct - 'cos good old oils are still malleable and I still have the colours on my palette to do the box canvas sides. Naughty me I left these till last instead of as I went along.
Thanks DJ for your kind comments. They have been produced for the West Norfolk Artist show at the Kings Lynn Summer festival and will be hung in the St Nicholas Gallery.

You're welcome Joannie, glad I made sense. :)

Hi Joan, these paintings are incredible, they are so illustrative! The detail is superb and suddenly I am once again willing to accept my own tendency to detail.

All the best with completing and showing these paintings!
