Two Figs

Superly painted as usual Lesley

Simply lovely.

Thanks Dennis, Dennis and Val, for your comments :)

Lovely study, Lesley.

Studies are fun. The weight in the darker red is particularly good. Do you time yourself?

Love the shadow colours Lesley, you also got that lovely bloom on the skin.

Thanks Gudrun and Carole :) Hi Gudrun, I try to keep to around 2 hours as I'm using natural light, and when the sun is out the shadows move and change if I take much longer.

Thanks. I also only use natural light, which is troublesome when it's too dull too! I tried a daylight bulb once to paint with, but it was not successful. Perhaps having 3 non-daylight bulbs in the same room messes it up. I look forward to a dedicated studio to try it out again. Not having good light is frustrating!

Hang on Studio Wall

Back to oilstudies looking at brushwork, speed and painting in natural light.

Lesley Dabson

I love to paint water, with boats, buildings or simply the water in oils. I'm a regular at life drawing sessions where I usually get covered in charcoal!
