panoramic

I am really enjoying working on a much larger scale on unstretched canvas stapled directly to my wooden studio painting wall.

The top one shown here, (Martello Tower), is at my maximum size possible, fitting snugly into the full depth of my studio extension and completely covering the wooden panel cladding that is fixed over the planks.( The photo shows the painting cropped of its blue surround, which allows for it to be stretched to an approximate final size of 150cm x 275 cm.)   The unstretched canvas is 120cm x 290cm ( about 4′ x 9’6″)

Here is the primed unstretched canvas, followed by the first stage of underpainting:

The other two paintings are each 115 cm x 160cm  ‘Out walking one evening in November, Cruit’ and ‘Once they danced at the crossroads – ruined gables, Cruit’
