This is the second painting I have made of this building; the first, Neal's Yard, was done in oils. This one - focusing on the pointy end of the wedge and the vacant lot beside the building - is in acrylics. The switch of media was partly to ring the changes, and partly because there was some writing to include (somehow, "No Parking" seems significant for the image), and it would have been jolly difficult to do with a knife in oils.
I suppose I could have used a brush with my oils, but that would have entailed solvents.
This painting was completed in two sessions. The results of the first session - with a 1" flat brush - are shown below:
- Titanium White
- Lemon Yellow
- Pthalo Blue
- Burnt Umber
Acrylic on canvas (box), 40 x 40 cm
