TWO LIFE STUDIES – ACRYLIC PAINTING

Two recent life paintings, one done yesterday. As you can see I have just purchased another can of water miscible grey undercoat. It does give a good medium/light tone to paint on and also means I can overpaint old paintings. It has a blue tinge which I must admit I am not fully exploiting on these sketches but in these sessions of just over an hour there isn’t too much thinking time, let alone anytime – but it’s always a challenge.

I like the water-miscible  undercoat as you can take some along with you and use it to correct if need be or work into the painting, as in the second one, without causing solvent smells and being able to clean your brush easily.

Other life paintings are available on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
