    A beauty, of course. Love the solid black and those tantalising lines marking off blocks of white space.

    • Thank you so much, glad you like the playing around with contrasts. The brief was to use different textures/mark making for different materials . Then I thought – how about bare paper for sunlight on leather. A more cerebral, thoughtful piece than usual and it also meant I’d finished!

  2. Water-based oil paints? How exactly does that work? I really like this composition and the colors, it makes the furniture feel weighty.

    • Not sure how it works Daniel, but it does! I’m not good with the smell of oils and not very tidy. I work in a family room that doubles as homework, tv, sitting room, dance room etc so me and oils don’t really mix well in that environment. So I tried these, obviously they aren’t exactly like oils but I like the rich, diluted consistency. I think that has helped with the weightiness of the furniture you mention. I like this piece, the scene is about 45 ¤ round from the last post’s scene. Give them a go and thanks for visiting

  3. A great still life scene and lovely work with the water based oils 😉 I find them so difficult to adjust to after years of oil painting!

    Great blocks of tone. Fascinating piece and intriguing title.

    • Another song title. That day seems ages ago now and the pictures have a nostalgic feel to them I think. I’ve got a false memory of sitting in this corner, but never did, just looked at it. I can feel that cracked leather though, an aunt had a similar settee when I was a child.
