Photographs of Augustus John relaxing and painting in his studio. He said My paintings and drawings are being overlooked because I do not paint abstract Art.
At the beginning of the life painting session each week we start with a series of quick studies. The three above were done in watercolour on cartridge paper. The smooth surface of the cartridge paper is not absorbent and the watercolour tends to float on the surface creating a fluid effect. It is a cheap way of making these quick studies without spending a lot of money on expensive watercolour paper. The image below is the finished oil sketch on canvas board which took one and a half hours.
