DOG WALKING 2 – ACRYLIC PAINTING

Back in July last year I was sitting in a gallery, doing my stint;  looking after the shop and trying to sell some paintings. It can be pretty slow around here,  so I set up my easel and started painting the picture below. It was based on  photos I had taken on a day walking in the Yorkshire Dales.

I used acrylics and square brushes and painted it during the day.

I was quite pleased with the result. I felt that the subject matter suited the style of painting. Unfortunately the punters dont agree. The painting stayed at my side, despite many attempts to shake it off. So the other day I decided to change the subject matter around and have the people walking towards me.

The actions of a desperate man . …

  1. I’m intrigued and flattered that you used one of my paintings for practice, Kim. I do like this block style to break away from painting between lines. I feel it gives me a more vibrant style.
    The two guys creeping out the shadows had a furtive feel about them, so perhaps it was better that they went. Also, as the painting is really about the play of light and shadow, having the subject as one mass, rather than two, makes more sense. And faces are more friendly than the backs of heads. We’ll see what happens with this version. Thanks.
