Pamela Craven Davies

An artist based in North Yorkshire, England, at the moment painting in oils on canvas.

Background for self-portrait

I think I am putting too much paint on the canvas to start with. I should be building the colours up in layers rather than diving straight in and being too quick.

Too heavy with paint. I like the composition but I don’t like the figures body
Too heavy with paint again and colours too bright and formal
Use of less paint by thinning it out with linseed oil but still too much on the canvas. I realised because I ran out of paint and used what was left on my brush and I preferred the effect I will try again
