Passengers boarding the Hamble Water taxi in Hampshire - WIP stages
|WIP on the Hampshire 'water taxi' service oil painting.|
In the panel above can be seen progression of work on the painting 'Passengers boarding the Hamble Water Taxi in Hampshire', completed in September 2018. The first stage is to painting a yellow ochre wash with acrylic paint on the support, in this case mounting board'. When this is dry then the drawing is done on the surface using dark brown acrylic paint. Moving on to the second stage the underpainting is applied, which means dark base tones are added through out using oil paint. Once this is dry, then the final layers of oil paint are applied. This final application is when the colours are more truer in value and detail is also applied at this stage, but the underpainting is still visible underneath. The final panel now shows the completed painting (20” x 28”) with all colours and tonal applied.
