Sunday Morning ABP Marathon. Northam, Southampton WIP painting

Sunday Morning ABP Marathon. Northam, Southampton WIP painting

This composite photograph shows work in progress on a recently completed painting depicting runners taking part in a marathon running through the streets of Southampton, one Sunday morning. The event was organised by Associated British Ports, a large employer within the city. Here the runners are shown going through the Northam area, in the east of the city. The picture shows 3 stages. The first panel is a red base colour ground with the drawing painted in brown acrylic paint. The second panel shows most of the basic, base colours applied to suggest tone and colour placement around the whole picture, which helps to give an idea of how the composition is working out and the final panel shows the finished painting. It is done on a 28" x 20" canvas on stretcher bars and painted with acrylics.
The painting was done during May 2016 mainly for entry in to the 'A Sporting Life' open art exhibition held at the Southampton City art gallery during Summer 2016, and is one of two painting entered and selected.
