Drawing on the smoked copper plates…
After being in the acid, and the ground wiped off…
First proof of the plate, (the plate being 5 x 6 cm).
as you might have gathered from above, Bumblebees are my subject for this series of plates!
Here is a painting that I was commissioned to do for a Christmas present!
I worked from two different photos, one for the landscape, the other for the subject, Whoopi. I used oil on canvas the size is about 30 x 40 cm.
It was challenging to paint a black dog, but still have all the detail and shadows. Building up the layers of colours and brush marks, with different washes and layers of paint was how I went about this.
It would be great to hear what you think !
Wow! The lovely ladies I have just finished my Ma with, and myself, have all decided to become a exhibiting group, and our first go at it will be in October!
