A Different Curtain - work in progress 2

here are the next three stages of A Different Curtain.

I've added the foliage here, behind the figures and have finished the bricks in the wall

In this one I have added the first pale green wash to the figures, made from a mix of ultramarine and transparent yellow. This is a base for the stronger colour to come.

and in this one, I have added the first wash of viridian, which will give the statue  a look of aged bronze.

The next picture you see will be the finished painting, because its just a matter now of adding another wash of viridian and touching up the shadows, where they need it. Oh, and deepening the pale red marble on which they sit. :)

Until tomorrow, then... 


  1. I'm loving this step by step, then await the end.
    Pat a hug.

  4. Hi, Pat,
    Very interesting. Keep up. Thank you for sharing the precious process.

  5. Hi Pat
    I see whimsey here. I love it. Can't wait to see the completion.

  6. Great to see the steps! Can't wait to see the end result.
    I am still thinking about how you did the shadows first, I'm going to try this approach myself, thanks!

  7. Looking good, Pat:) Is this a new method you're trying or have you used this before ?

  8. Glad you're all enjoying the process :)

    Michael , everything on this painting I have done before, from painting shadows first (My Captain) to the yellow ochre and pale brickwork (Beyond the Door)
    You can find them both on the blog search :) xx

  9. It's awesome Pat. :) Really great concept and well done.
