  • I ran out of space up there so I shall continue here.
    I constantly modify it as I dab it onto the paper. Once the main tonal areas are in - incidentally, the paper is on a slope of about thirty degrees - I then add the details with a finer, smaller brush until my mind start to wander onto other things like toast and homemade marmalade or coffee with a fridge-cold Wispa and a game of cards.

  • Thank you for sharing your practical, informative approach in preparation for your painting. It has worked wonderfully well as the highlights and shadows are superb. Also like the subdued curtain backdrop. I take it that this is a watercolour? A difficult medium for this kind of image.

  • Superb is the only word Rupert. The "illusion" ( 2D into3D ) is more marked because you've left in the pencil marks on the cloth. These paintings of yours always put me in mind of Sir William Nicholson, though that may be only the subject matter since his were in oils. Glad to know you think of other important things ( the Wispa etc ) - mine would be whatever I can lay my hands on which is sweet. Obviously a need, after all the concentration.

  • Thank you Rupert for your description. I am pleased that in amongst the expertise there is room for more mundane matters like coffee, toast and chocolate, which is what matters to me, especially coffee. I also have my favourite CD on for weeks to facilitate inspiration and flow of paint, oil. Other medium have different locations in the house and no music. Strange but true. At the moment it is Choral Works by Owain Park. If you like superb a cappella singing of exceptionally intelligent and intellectual compositions of sublime music, I recommend it!

  • Totally in awe of you ability Rupert and appreciating your explanations of method etc,, might I ask how much of your white areas are negative (unpainted) space just left that way, and do you use white of any description in your work?

  • I can't add much more to the extensive positive comments above but I like all your work and this one is superb. Thanks for the tutorial as well.

  • I agree with the above. Love your work and appreciate the information on how it was done.

  • It's that lovely silver teapot again! Like the way it is placed and the very light area of the tablecloth with' the pattern of the curtain adding colour behind.
