One of my chosen photos from my recent visit to Cheshunt, is an interesting view of the local landscape minus the glass that once existed. I love the two-dimensional feel for the frame. I intend to make the colours subdued in the foreground and quite warm and “inviting” in the middle distance with a softening in the background. This is a good example of close – near – and far that artists should follow in such a composition. I’m sure a professional photographer such as Chelsea Parsons (chelseaparsons.com) would do a far better job of this scene than I did with my Canon 350D SLR Digital, but all I wanted was a record for a coloured pencil interpretation.
My Crucifixion banner has progressed a little since yesterday with silver coins and blood-stained rocks being added. I am working on the chalice today.
We are in the middle of a hot spell here, it was 36.9c yesterday and 35c is forecast for today. I am painting in the garage where it is a lot cooler. Benson my dog, is upstairs enjoying our airconditioning. Smart hound!
