The execution of this is going to take quite a while, especially in terms of the individual layers. Letting one dry before being able to get on with the next. I will be using a range of different materials on this; oil paint varnish, gold leaf, paper, metallic flakes,and probably some other stuff too.
I am really looking forward to this one, I just have to wait a couple more weeks until payday so that I can get the canvas.
Last time I posted I had a very talented lady Anni Howard get in touch with me, who uses the history of the area as inspiration for her knitted pieces. A very interesting read at www.annidomino.blogspot.co.uk
As always the progress of my new painting will be posted here and in more detail on my website at www.oilypalette.co.uk so keep visiting to see how it goes. In terms of composition, it's going to be the most complex piece I've painted in a number of years and size-wise I want it to be grand in stature, perhaps the biggest painting I will have worked on since Art college...I just hope I can fit it in my studio space, it's only wee!!
