Industrial art

One of the things about having a studio at Spode is you get to look round the site.


These two paintings are based on photos taken around the back of the site. The round window is easier to find. The globe light on a bracket is further round down a bit of a path that leads to the back of the visitor centre.

In another town they might have been removed and sold as salvage, as it is they are still there.

So then how to paint them. I dont have a printer so I was forced to work off the photo on my phone. That’s fine but I have to keep a thumb on the screen to try and stop it switching off. So it’s a bit if a juggling problem.  Also I like the image close to the canvas so I ended up holding both the phone and canvas in my left hand while painting and mixing with my right. Sometimes leaning the painting on a chair to support it.

I intend to do more.

  1. Gosh, these are nice. I put a link on your comment on my post in answer to your question about putting pictures in comments. I know I didn’t explain it very well. So, since I’m not all that savvy about this stuff, I looked it up in WP support. I hope this helps answer your question or perhaps can lead you to the answer! Fingers crossed! 🙂
