As I have all but finished Windows on a Time (One) I'm ready to start the next painting in the series. I'm going to use the concept I gained from a building in Bendigo that was next or near to the Bendigo Gallery. I took lot of photos and have chosen this one.
Stage One I have draw up my composition which is looking like this at the moment.Look at all those lovely bricks!!
Stage Two Have started to block out what the baby will look like. I think I should stop eating those mushrooms!!
Stage Three Things are out of control and I'm painting in a completely different style. I'm going to have to rope this baby in as it's meant to be exhibited with its sister Windows on a Time 1. And I vaguely remember saying at the beginning of the year I was going to work with a milder palette. I blame researching the Beaver Hall Group of painters from Canada. Their vibrant palettes have reminded my brain how much I love painting in strong colours. Oh well, let's see where it leads.
Stage Four Big changes in Windows on a Time-Two though looking a bit patchy. The ruined building is taking shape and I'm happy with the colour of the bricks and old peeling plaster. The Old Town in the background seems to be growing in sympathy and I like the placement of the figures. Happy to receive comments.
Stage Five The baby has been born.
I'm very pleased with the way *she looks.
She has been posted in the Latest gallery where you can read her specifications.
