A painting demonstration

“The Reading”, oil on linen canvas, 150x200cm

 

ENGLISH: I started this painting in a 4 days demonstration in Art in Action, some of you who have visited the fair have seen it half-way through. As it always happens to me, when I don’t finish a painting in one go I might take an incredibly long time to finish it, or I even abandon it. That is because I always find that I have more urgent paintings that I need to work on, or administrative work that cannot be delayed, and time always runs too quickly. But luckily I did go back to this painting!

 

ESPAÑOL: Empecé este cuadro durante una demonstración de 4 días en Art in Action (Oxford), quizás algunos de vosotros lo hayáis visto allí a mitad. Como siempre me ocurre, cuando no acabo un cuadro de un tirón, podría acabar estando un tiempo larguísimo en mi estudio hasta que lo acabe, o, peor, podría abandonarlo del todo, ya que siempre tengo cuadros y tareas más urgentes, el tiempo corre demasiado deprisa. Pero afortunadamente volví a retomar este cuadro!

Art in Action, day 2: today I could paint the sky with blue, having made sure that the yellow is touch-dry. Addying details wet on wet to the wall
