On my easel...

This is the beginnings of a new painting about love.. Under painting is cadmium red. I nearly always paint a canvas red or a red'ish brown to start start with.. It's at this stage when all I'm doing is looking at it standing back and re-drawing. 


  1. Interesting to know what you do to begin a painting - I would never have guessed that it would begin with red. Obviously I'm not an artist!

  2. I had two 'old school' tutors who taught me to use a red ground that's why I use it Magpie.


Welcome to one and all, please feel free to leave a few words..

I am always pleased to read what you have to say and will always try to answer any questions you have to ask. ~ Julie
