Crafting of Prizewinners...



How 'Farm Machinery, Highgvale' was Crafted

The canvas is blocked in using a minimum of very dilute paint

A soft cotton cloth is used to wipe out part of the paint.

Detail of the wiping out process

Before the painting dries two new figures and their dog  are ghosted in to give weight to the left side of  the painting. The paint is allowed to dry overnight and a further layer of paint is added.

The dog's direction is changed. After allowing to dry, a warm glaze is added over the painting.
