My paintings consist of several layers.
Before I got to this stage I have added an extra coat of acrylic primer to the canvas and an undercoat in acrylic paint to outline the main shapes in the painting. I have over-painted the layers of green and made a sky change from light to dark in oil paint. Each colour will take around a week to dry.
My idea for the painting is the 3 levels of grass leading down from Kings College to the Backs, one of the most famous views in Cambridge. You will be able to see a small King's College Chapel between the row of trees.
These two images show how I outline the design of the trees in white before painting them a solid red in oil paint underneath where I shall place the copper leaf.
Painter living in Cambridge. Mixes fantasy and realism and loves medieval art.
