Friesian Cow Portrait – oil painting

Friesian Cow Portrait – oil painting

Martin Davey animal farm cow art
Friesian Cow Portrait – oil painting

This oil painting features a portrait of a cow. It is painted possibly in a 'romantic and sentimental' mode, with softening of the details that oil paint allows you to do, and is based on a photograph.
It is sized at 16” x 12” and painted on mounting board. The board itself is covered in gesso to stop paint from soaking in to the paper fibers, after which an acrylic under-painting is done of the subject. Then the final oil painted layer is done on top. This portrait was completed during September 2017.

Weston Shore Boats At Yacht Club, Southampton - acrylic painting
This scene shows a boat yard at Weston Shore, Hampshire, near to Southampton Water. The yard is attached to a local sailing club and on this hot summers day can be seen a large number of boats and yachts under cover. Some have not moved for some time judging by the amount of grass under the wheels of the trailer.
The painting is done on stretched paper, measuring 20” x 16”, and painted in acrylic paint during July 2017.
The painting can be seen in greater detail via this link.

Southampton Freightliner Train Maintenance WIP stages

'Southampton Freightliner Train Maintenance' WIP stages

Southampton Freightliner Train Maintenance -

WIP stages

The panel above shows work in four stages of a painting called 'Southampton Freightliner Train Maintenance'. This is a small maintenance depot on the outskirts of Southampton (Millbrook) and features 3 typical locomotives to be found at the location.
The first panel shows the initial drawing, done in brown acrylic paint on a brown wash base of painting, to act as a ground for the painting to be built upon. The second panel shows dark colours applied, which act as under-painting for the final layers added later. At this stage acrylic paints art used. The painting is deliberately darker than intended and lacks detail. In the third layer can be seen the final oil layer start to be applied, all with the correct tonal and detail qualities. Finally the fourth panel displays the final, finished painting, which is sized at 28 x 20" and is painted in oils on a mounting board surface.
The final painting can also be examined in detail here.

Disposal of further paintings
Following on from last month, more old paintings have now been broken up and disposed of. Now the remains fit easily into part of a bin bag. The space is needed and these pictures have seen their best days. However the images are not lost as all have been correctly and properly photographed over the years at their best. There is still a number to get rid of too...
