Painting project

Part 1 Use photographs of a parade of village shops and several figures to paint an interesting scene, with Colin Steed

Paint along with LP

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

How to gather information from several photographs

Make small figure studies

Work out a final composition for next month’s painting

Aglint of light on trees, an interesting sky with landscape or fleeting light on a building; inspiration can strike anywhere, at any time. We often travel miles looking at spectacular landmarks to find the perfect view, but fail to appreciate a good subject right on our doorstep. I hope this painting project will encourage you to consider unusual subjects near to your home and consider your local high street as a possible subject. It could be a small corner shop, post office or a large parade of shops. Some of you may live close to lovely old shops in a picturesque village. For me, it’s just a parade of shops and flats built in the 1960s. At first glance, it’s not your typical subject to paint.
