Oil Paintings

I began using water miscible oil paint in 2018. Initially started with an under-painting in monotones to establish values. I soon found that this can be done more quickly using acrylic paint.



 

This acrylic under-painting is based on a black and white photo of my maternal grandmother.

This painting is composed from several sketches in done in the Nicola Valley. The figures are from my imagination. The instruments are from the middle ages – left to right, rebec (ancestor of the violin), hurdy-gurdy and bombard.
