Commission Progress

Continued with under painting of panels, using acrylic paints, this is just the first part of my process, and it is important to get a good balance of colour bearing in mind that it will all be completely gilded over.

Gilding completed today, will leave overnight and then distress both panels tomorrow, as timing will be critical.

Coming towards the culmination of these panels, I always enjoy this part as it is a coming together of all the processes. By now the panels are quite heavy and really take some man handling around, sometimes wonder why I don’t just paint on canvas, but then I guess I wouldn’t enjoy it half so much, and for me, texture and relief is my passion.
