Lights, Camera... Action!

I just love the feeling I get when I have an inspiration for a new painting! I can finally start setting something up! And that 'oh so clean' white canvas comes with so many possibilities... 

Yes, I love it when my brushes call me... and I am right there as we speak.

Right now I am at the very beginning stage, trying to manipulate the perfect light to create something warm and atmospheric. This is when my Light Box comes in to it's own...


Light Box in Action!


This will be the first painting I begin in the new studio and I already have a plan for the second, which I want to get going at the same time. So watch this space for more progress shots!

Back soon...

    1. Easy-peasy John! Not at all technical but makes it much easier to 'place' shadows and control the light :0)

  7. Looks very fancy and high tech but such a great idea for still life compositions like yours that are all about the light and shadows. Did you buy the light box or make it? I don't think I'd need one for my subject matter but I did have a little bought one once for photographing my finished paintings but it was rubbish-the inside was electric blue which was not the background I was looking for!

    1. Um... Electric blue?? Lol, yes... that wouldn't work!
      My Dad bespoke built this one for me for my Birthday! It's made life a lot easier! It's easy to dramatise the light and create any atmosphere that would otherwise take me ages to get :0)
