The perfect vista

Follow Graham Laughton step by step as he sketches a Nottinghamshire landscape in gouache
A Patchings Vista, oil on canvas, 20x30in. (51x76cm). There is a novelty in emulating John Constables’ small sketches in gouache (see the following demonstration) then translating and realising a similar scene as a much larger oil painting as I have done here. I used loose and open brushwork, restricting myself to long-handled hog hair brushes Nos. 1 to 3. The canvas was grounded with a burnt sienna acrylic and some of this colour shows through to increase the richness of the painting. Liquin medium was used to spread and soften areas for subtlety.
