Ian's Art. Mona

Hi every one, and welcome to another art stage.

Lorry - Well finally I got this basically painted in and I'm quite happy how it turned out but I'll work on this some more at a later stage.


Fireman - After many attempts I've finally got the figure sketched to the right scale which I made a template of and placed on the canvas to make sure I was happy with the perspective on the canvas. Once happy I put the drawing on the canvas and painted him in ....he looks a character doesn't he (: but I 'll do more work on him as the pic progresses.


Loco - I have given this another coat of green and a little lighter again.


Coaches - After all the work and messing about trying to do the figures it was time to tidy up the coaches with a darkish red and cream colour paint - looking better now.


Fore & back ground - where the track is I have given this an under coat of paint in between rails. Also where lorry is I've painted this white on station wall I also painted in the Windows on the buildings and did little bits to the harbour.


Trials - I've had my problems with the lorry and doing the figure but now the canvas is more or less under-coated I do feel quite happy how it is going.....but still plenty of work ahead as I try to bring painting more to life.


See you all soon for another stage.


Take care,

Ian.

Really enjoying the picture and your comments on what you're doing at each stage. It shows how much patience you have Ian and what it takes for a picture to 'come alive'. Both the effort and skill is amazing. The fireman does have a certain character 😊.
