My Art in the Mak­ing

Sor­rento Coast­line, Italy

International Artist - - 10 Steps To Paint Like An Impressionist: Part 6 -

STAGE 1 With ev­ery scene be­ing dif­fer­ent, it means ev­ery ap­proach needs to be tailor-made for each in­di­vid­ual paint­ing. Be­fore start­ing, I’m for­mu­lat­ing how I’ll sculpt and mould the paint­ing. I see this process as sim­i­lar to do­ing a math equa­tion, mak­ing sure that ev­ery­thing col­lates. STAGE 2 When it comes to this scene, the one thing I like to keep in mind is to an­a­lyse the dif­fer­ent planes. This will ed­u­cate me to what will be re­quired to ex­e­cute the paint­ing. No­tice the fact that the head­lands, wa­ter and land ar­eas are on very dif­fer­ent planes.

STAGE 3 By the time I’m at this stage, I will have used my hog hair brush, mon­goose brush and pal­ette knife. This will en­sure that I’ve got a va­ri­ety of marks. STAGE 4 Fi­nal Stage Sor­rento Coast­line, Italy, oil, 12 x 9" (30 x 23 cm) Now is a good time to check how my paint sur­face is go­ing, be­ing oil paint I’m able to ad­dress any marks that might be of con­cern. I’m very care­ful that I don’t re­move too many brush marks, as this could ren­der my paint­ing a lit­tle vis­ually anaemic.
