Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

excellent...these smaller sizes fit right in with the small stuff incidental format.

There is much to be said about learning to trust the eyes, squinting...seeing shapes, color, value and just put it down. One can cover a lot of ground quickly...but it takes experience, time, confidence. Of course...experience comes with the doing...and that means more than getting one's feet wet at the shore's edge!!!

Lovely lovely lovely...
wips are great for showing what can be done...and getting others to ask an accounting of themselves as to why they aren't doing more!

Excellent Andrew! Now this is what I'm talkin' about right here!!!

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Smashing WIP thanks Andrew. Fascinating watching and learning.

The question I had brimming all the way through was answered when you showed your keys, as I must admit I merely scanned the first post which actually stated the size.

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Hi Andrew,
BRAVO!!! Beautifully done and a wonderful finish. Love the painting. I really like how you showed the painting in both lights. I was wondering if the lighting in the cafe presents color problems at times for you. I know you talked about the light changing how does this effect your color perception? I know when I am on site I have to work fast because of the rapidly changing light in the late afternoon. I try to set up in a place that is indirect light, but in a cafe with the incandesant light and the window light I would think this could be a problem, seeing color correctly. Small paintings help, but even so....
All should try this (I'm going to) and learn. Andrew has given us all an excellent "road map" on how he does his wonderful paintings. Again BRAVO!!!
Really enjoyed this,
Visualone

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

As a current student of color, I was quite inspired with this WIP. Thank you so much for giving of yourself to this project. May the light hold a little longer for you.

Thanks John. You inspired me to do this in the beginning!

I do struggle with the colour perception at times. I tend to paint intentionally with cooler colours when I am in incandescent lighting stiuations. I have found however that if the VALUES are correct then the colours wil look fine when the painting is seen under different lighting conditions.
I like finding a place in a window where the light is diffused or reflected from a building nearby on an overcast day. Unfortunately that is not often the case so I just make the best of it.
I have painted in so many different situations I find the cafes fairly forgiving. I remember painting at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto Canada and I was surrounded by cattle as the farmers walked them by. I had to move my easel quickly a couple of times!

Dangerous work!! this painting business indeed!!
Cheers... Andrew

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Thank you Andrew. Great inspiration here. I imagine painters all over the world flocking to the cafe to get some painting in. I can't wait. Maybe I'll be one of them.

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Andrew, Thanks for your kind words, but this is your WIP and you did a great job with it (I knew you would).
I sort of figured that would be your answer (on color perception) but was not sure.. You have just confirmed what i have told students and anyone who asks that if you get the values right the color will pretty much take care of itself.
Thanks again for this and it really is a "keeper".

Re: How I paint in a cafe by Andrew Judd

Wonderful little painting and wonderful WIP. Thanks so much! I would consider renaming it "Taking the Mystery Out Of Painting In Cafes"

Just lovely, not to mention inspiring! I started doing some conte sketches at a weekly music gig I have in an upmarket cafe - maybe I should take a few oils in one nite.... it's dark in there, though. I often can't tell what color I'm using, I can be surprised to find out in correct lighting that I've used pink instead of something else for instance, but it works cos it's the right value so that kind of lighting condition is very helpful in seeing the correct values more easily. Mixing color could be more of a challenge, though, hehe.

Thanks again!

Julianne
