I need to let this canvas dry and then add a dash of retouch varnish to liven it up.

This is one of the most difficult paintings that I’ve undertaken.  Trying to do by hand, grading and blending that would normally be carried out by airbrushing.

Feeling a bit impatient, I’ve added cobalt driers (siccative) to my oil paints.

Soutine’s works are coming to the Courtauld!  19th October 2017 – 21st January 2018.  One of my favourite artists.  I can’t wait to see these.

I recently watched Solaris (1972), the original Russian version and Solaris (2002) the American version.  Both are based on Stanislaw Lem’s science fiction novel, Solaris.  The 1972 film is extremely long but a much more satisfying experience, asking lots of interesting philosophical questions.  The 2002 version seems to have lost much of the quality of enquiry and become just another ‘tale’.
