How to spice up saucy browns

As requested by Hardin in his comment in the last blog post I’ll show you the working painting and corresponding blocks of colour here. Please bear in mind this is not a finished painting, it is a working painting, and if I was to repaint it I would do it slightly differently by placing the […]

Limited but not limited at all

I said in the last blog post that going to an art workshop where we only used the colours of blue, brown and white might be somewhat limited . How wrong I was. It was fascinating. The tutor was a chap who certainly knew his subject and got it across to us with ease. The […]
