and immediate, that's what I'm trying to preserve in the work.
I have a tendency to fiddle, you see. Now, when I work in charcoal or pastels I work quickly with a certain flow. However, sometimes when I paint, I get bogged down in the detail and the end result can look overworked and tired.
Enter the new Pochade box. I think the small size of the work, and the compact nature of the palette and box are helping the speed and flow of the work.
So, here are two of the first pieces done from life. Each one took about thirty minutes.
Off to find some more willing ladies to be immortalised..........If you are reading this, fancy laying around naked and you are in Norfolk, drop me a line............
