Portrait paintings in my new studio

Those of you following my Facebook page couldn’t help but notice that I HAVE A NEW STUDIO. This is the (tidy) studio just after I received my custom-made pinboard from Designer Pinboards.

I’ve been churning out some small oil studies of my fellow JKPP artists to get back into a painting routine. I have started each picture with a sketch in burnt sienna then coloured it in. Essentially. Some progress shots:

The colour palette I have been using most is permanent rose/quinacrodine violet, naples yellow, yellow ochre, lemon yellow, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and titanium white. Occasionally with a bit of indian red, payne’s grey or pthalo blue thrown in.

Inspired by David Jon Kassan’s parallel palette, I have been clipping my palette to my easel:

I am currently working on a painting of my son which we started with live sittings. He lasted a total of 20 minutes. Keep an eye out for the finished work!

  1. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance
    from an established blog. Is it very hard to
    set uup your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.

    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
