Another digital start based on a photograph that I’d taken at a the railway station in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan. A bunch of coolies (porters) were sitting around trying to catch a bit of sun in winter.
Deliberately jumped in massing the shapes and then realised that it was to be massed in based on a rough drawing! Looking at the mess you can be sure I’ll remember next time! Plan to do a larger painting based on this reference.
KMP’s are skill building exercises advised by Kevin Macpherson in his book Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light & Color. I started these in 2007 and am continuing with it in 2010. If you want to know more about this set of exercises click here.
