Hello all here is an update to this painting as I saidin one of my last posts that I will concentrate on the background at the moment I also said it might be a while before I post again as I'm a slow painter :-) I'll keep you updated right till the end result I'm using Windsor and Newton paints and Downey Georgian . My colours for the back ground are sap green burnt umber Windsor yellow and flake White

Hello Tim,

great choice, this is one of my favorite paintings. Have you ever seen a Waterhouse painting in person? Most of the originals probably are in collections in Great Britain, aren't they? I was wondering what they actually look like, surface & brushwork as well as colors you can never quite catch on a reproduction. I saw a couple of Burne-Jones last year in the Delaware Museum of Art (their Pre-Raffaelite collection is awesome!!!) and was surprised at the thick application of the paint.

I would love to look at a better (larger) photograph of your work, it is not easy to see your progress on the small images you posted. What size of canvas or panel do you use?

Hello susanne the size of this canvas is 48"x36" the painting so far is flat when I come to painting the girl again I'll use thicker paint so the brush marks are visible where appropriate. As to your question aboutseeing a waterhouse in the flesh then the answer is no there was an exhibition last year at the royal academy london but I couldn't make it :crying:
