|Whole image, it's 100cm x 100cm on canvas. Have painted about 25% of detail. Really taking ages, about a week now. Manage around 3 hours a day. But not every day. Arm aches after that!|
|Close up of detailing. First layer, will need light/dark/underpaint in-between lines. Then glase with overall wash.|
|Test glaze. Needs bit more work. Struck me I could use a gold underneath or even gold leaf in a future project.|

Armed with the information from the walk and (obviously) a brief from the client, I sat down yesterday to start drawing the map. This is just first draft, I have a feeling there will be many drafts. Already I can see changes I want to make. For what it's worth, I think the rear works better than the front - but that may be the effect of the pencil drawing here - makes it look very busy.
I have been commissioned to draw a walking map for Bathscape. These posts will show development.
First up, was walk the route. These are in no particular order and are part of approx 200 pictures and an hour of video taken to document the route. Found several differences and walking the route gave an insight into what the map should look and feel like.
It's quite muddy and very pretty.
Start of something new. 🙂🤞 Using #oilcolour for first time in a very long time. Up to now, I haven't really appreciated them. This is an experiment. Will they frustrate me less, drying too slowly than acrylics drying too quickly? here's the first version:
This time with pastel pencils. Never really used them, which is weird because I have 144 different colours! Will try again. Used fixative between layers. #derwentpastelpencils #fabercastellpastels#derwentpastels #paper #drawing #Art#bath_bafineart #illustration
So I'm catching up with blog posts. Wish I could link some applications - still here's the first catch up. The other thing that annoys me is that the drag and drop for pictures has stopped working.
