Is it Time to Paint Yet?
I have now got an A1 Canvas Panel with a decent enough drawing on of the buildings and a tram, however I don't have any Characters on the canvas nor do I have any paint on the Canvas. I think the best thing is to paint the buildings and the background with a turpsy paint mix to give the under painting a chance to dry. Im taking a real chance in doing this painting in Oils apart from the two studies I have only used Oils once before and I have a lot of skills to learn.
Overall I’m quite happy with most of the characters, I wanted some of them to interact with others but I also wanted a few of the characters looking out to the viewers. If you look at Lowey’s work his characters are also doing something, kids mucking around up to mischief. I want the viewer to say what she looking at or what’s he up to. I didn’t just want a line a people with heads down doing nothing. I’ve added different age groups as I was surprised when I looked through the photographs I took how many elderly people were in Manchester city centre. I even remember how proud my mum was whom passed a few weeks ago during this project which hit me for six was so proud that she went to Manchester by herself and went to Primark, she even put it on her Facebook status.
