Painting London Life - February 2017

Original painting by Jean 2017
I recently taught two open medium painting courses on the subject of London Life (or other major cities).  The classes included students who were new to painting as well as experienced artists.  Some students used conventional oils, water mixable oils and acrylic paints.  It was a difficult subject to tackle as even my experienced students were to realise.  This was because of the combination of architecture (straight lines, perspective) and figures.

After starting with a few of the basics on perspective and proportion of figures, the students prepared their canvases and boards. They went onto to create some very successful paintings at different levels, but everyone learnt a lot along the journey!  Please take a look at their wonderful work....
