First Canvas for Monday’s painting…

No it’s not the weather that’s turned bad in the North West, or a copy of a JW Turner storm, its me not liking to paint on a white background, never a good idea when with oil painting you work from dark to white…….so blocks of colour are put on a large canvas to get rid of the blinding white of the original canvas….!

…would make sense with watercolour painting (to work from a white background) when you paint from light to dark, but not with oils, plus it gives you a visual and colour texture to build upon.

Next step the drawing on site, with the plan tomorrow of a big sky and a Liverpool sky line…

Cheers – Dom
