Module Structure


All of the preparation is crucial in the making of a painting. So much is about getting the mind to start this amazing relationship with a object to paint

Working from the centre of the canvas

We will always work from the centre of the image. This is the process I follow and the more I make work the more it proves to be an effective way to start the relationship with the painting

Mark the Horizon then the Sea and Sky

One line but the start of the whole piece. From there lets paint below and above the horison

The main subject of your painting

So we have found the object that has inspired to make this painting and we have set up the foundation to put the object onto the canvas.
