Large painting

Posted Friday, November 11th, 2011

These are images of the studio showing the first sessions working on the large painting.Over the coming weeks I will photograph the work as it develops in the studio.

On beginning I had all the studies I had made around in the studio and also made some quick ink drawings before starting. Although the studies inform what I am doing I have to react naturally to the scale of the canvas, improvising across the surface.
