I Love Delauney!

I love doing copies of works I admire. It's a great way to see yourself into them, to discover things like feelings, symbols, colours and approaches one might otherwise miss. There's always a bit of folly in doing such a thing, but I hope that the tribute is more present.

I love Delauney's work - and especially this one from his Eiffel Tower series. So, this is the second time I've painted a copy of it. Great fun.

"Frankhensteen!"

I thought I would do an oil painting of Gene Wilder from the material for 'Young Frankenstein', for a friend, partly as an exercise - I thought it would interesting to do a grisaille. That's a grey layer that underlies a certain way of oil painting - grey beneath, then colour on top. I don't usually work that way - I mix a full palette on the side then dive in - but this was interesting to paint. Especially for how few layers of paint it needed to complete itself. Some of my colour ones are twelve, fifteen, thirty layers of glazes and whatnot. This one is about three.


We loved the movie growing up. Still do.
