An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
I wanted to paint this as I was fasinated by the statue of the Duke of Rutland (which was unveiled in 1852). I loved the way he leant forward. This is our market place in Leicester which has traded now for for over 700 years.
Wow Linda! this is intriguing, enjoy the echo of Duke Rutland in the building to the left.
Dear Cecile. Thank you. This one was painted rather quickly due to the number of people around me (painting around people is often off putting as I get rather nervous as I have no idea of the outcome of the painting and have no set plan of how I paint).
Sure hear you there, my ploy is to imagine myself to be invisible...usually go small when around people say up to 6x8" at most and crouch somewhere unobtrusive.
I try that but end up with people telling me their life stories and problems!! I did think about putting a hat near me to try and ward them off!! (mind you I may get enough money to buy a free coffee).
Great Idea! in Mexico the people that wanted money were the ones gathering.
Another fine piece,.......I know what you mean about painting around people........one part of your brain is painting......and one part kinda distracted.......ya did good!!!!!
My worst experience with people is when I was painting Thames Barges (boats) at Pin Mill (Nr Ipswich in England) and a workman was explaining how depressed he was with life (and was holding a chain saw at the time!). I was totally distracted at that point!!!!!. I'll try and dig out the painting I did in watercolour.
