Be Still

This is another painting done as a demonstration for my Wednesday morning group at St John’s Church Hall. Once again I jumped in at the deep end using oil on canvas Alla Prima which means painted in one go.

I put on the paint quite thickly and worked an image out of the mess. No fixed idea before I started, just trusting it would come good. Some of the group were quite alarmed for me, but I reassured them it was only a bit of paint on a canvas, an experiment that worked. No fear! A very good session as one of the group bought the painting there and then.
