Today’s Art (19th October 2015)

As regular readers of this site probably know, I tend to make my daily paintings quite far in advance of when I post them (it’s kind of like a three-month time delay, I guess).

Anyway, today’s painting is a painting of part of Portsdown Hill (in Portsmouth ) that I painted from memory shortly after a car journey during the summer. This painting required slightly more digital editing than I expected though.

If you want to learn how to paint from memory, then this article might come in handy.

In addition to this, I’ll provide both the “work in progress” lineart for the painting and the brief sketch I made as soon as I got home as a blog exclusive.

And here’s the small sketch that I made about ten to twenty minutes after memorising the scene in question (and, yes, I drew the outline of the car window too):
