Work in Progress

Here are a couple more photos of the two commissions I am currently working on.
Finally got some colour on them today. The blue doors on the Provencial window will be louvered and the lavender will be coloured lavender - I just like to base it out with green first.

Provencale Panel

This is the other commission I am currently working on in my studio at the moment.
It has been painted onto 9mm MDF that I have then cut to shape.
So far I have planned out the basic window shape and the Provencial landscape in a monotone and will gradually build up the colours as I progress.

The finished piece will be used for a exhibition stand by a company that specialises in French style home accessories & gifts.

School Mural

Haven't had much painting time of late but managed to get some done on the school window panels today.
I have now fleshed out the tones a bit more. The paints I am using are Raw Umber and white with a Magnolia base...! Yes, I did say Magnolia :-)

School Mural

It has been quite a few weeks (months even) since I posted last. Consider my wrists slapped :-)

I am working on some panels in my studio at the moment. Two of the panels are for a couple of windows in a school in South London. When the school was extended these two windows had to be blocked in so with the panels I am aiming to re-create the lost view.
It looks a little bland at the moment whilst I plan everything out - lots of roof tops interspersed with foliage and some wildlife. I have just recently finished a Peter Pan theme mural so I have been painting lots of rooftops of late :-)

The other panel is for an exhibition stand and will be a Provencal window complete with lavender fields. Once I have planned something out I will post up some pics.
