Can't work out how to get my oils to the part I wanted to paint (I'll work it out one day!) so went with copics and watercolour.
Lovely warm day. Sat on a park bench the council has put there right by the water - beautiful spot off the main walkway - you can stay there for hours and never hear or see another person. I'm thinking of moving in...
Main thing that I learnt today -if you are going to sit on a council bench for a few hours TAKE A PILLOW!!!! Argh my aching.... you know where
Sketch for shapes with a thin copic.
Textures and light/shade with a thicker copic
Parts of my anatomy going numb by now....
Wash of colour
If I can't get my oils there next time I might just use watercolour and leave the copics at home.
Oh, we took lots of photos of the area - they will be in the reference library soon
