Well that's it folks! last one....and it's an old brown conker. Would have liked to finish off with something a bit more impressive but I'm away from home and limited in what I can do. Also I felt a bit sorry for this particular conker.
Colours: Burnt Sienna with Brown Madder. For the shade add Violet Dioxide and Indanthrene Blue. For the warmer tones I added Perylene Maroon and Permanent Carmine. A wash of Gold Ochrewas added at the end for the darkest details I added a small amount of Neutral TInt to the mixes.
Welcome to my blog, here you can find out about my botanical artwork and online tuition. You'll find some general information on painting, drawing as well as a bit of science.
I've been a freelance artist and illustrator for most of my working life. That's 30+ years! I hold a BSc in Biology, a Diploma in Botanical Art and studied some IT. I also worked in education along the way before returning to painting full time.
Writing this blog, I hope helps others but also helps to motivate me - it adds some order to the sometimes chaotic and solitary life of an artist.
