Bristol Harbour

My second painting of the day.  A bit of Bristol Harbour with the spire of St Mary Redcliffe in the background. I only had left a few minutes to speedily complete the foreground water, then realised it was the most interesting bit, like clouds, forever changing - I should have tackled it earlier. Perhaps I'll get back there and do more there. Here is another water painting done a while ago, the River Avon in Woodford Valley, near Salisbury

Started the day with the first meeting of the UK Pochard Group in Bristol.   After a coffee and introductions we all set off and worked around here for a bit.  I took longer at the task whilst others went to find new subject matter. Then  four of us met later and painted the harbour to finish the day. We were blessed with a glorious  and sunny, though pretty cold day, below freezing to start. My first experience painting with a group and it was a very positive one and enjoyable.

Generally oil painting is a process of painting with pigments (mixed in oil) that are made by oil as per the name of painting. Traditionally oil painting was begin with charcoal or thinned paint. The basic rule of oil paint is fat over lean means that each additional layer of paint should contain more oil than the layer below to allow proper drying. 

Linseed oil is a main ingredient of oil painting. It comes from flax seeds. Other oils that are generally used for oil painting include poppyseed oil, walnut oil and safflower oil. These oils used for less yellow color and different drying time.

Oil painting is a very slow process. First painter has to draw sketch on canvas by pencil what they want to represent in oil painting. Then painter mixed the pigments of any color with oil, usually linseed oil but other oil may be used as per the requirement. Drying process of oils is also very slow that’s why it does consume more time rather than other paintings.
