Using mainly white, Payne’s grey, yellow ochre and Indian red. it’s very easy to use too much colour. Scraping off the colour and adding white as I think it’s too dark. I have received in the post the 1976 catalogue from the exhibition at the Royal Academy, it’s a second hand book and at £8 I think it’s a bargain. I also got L.S.Lowry 1987 Phaidon, again second hand and really cheap although a lot of the reproduction photographs are in black and white which is a shame.
I must go to Salford when it reopens. I’ve gone online and started the virtual tour. You can get really close up to the paintings and see how thick the paint is.
