Highlights from the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Open Painting Evening

figurative life painting Mall Galleries portraits ROI

It was another great evening with members painting along side non-members. As usual we had three models to paint and the whole scenario was electric!

This is the finished version of the model I painted on the night.

Because of the weather this year we had to leave 40 minutes before the usual time, but that was no hindrance as the works produced were all great, with each having an individual touch in flowing alla prima!

This is my palette set up for the painting above while in progress. I finished the rest at home from a photo.

These are few pictures taken on the night, I couldn't take as much as I used to, as time was against us.


David's palette!

David's final stage of the model- I'm sure he'll finish up later on, like I did.


David with his winning piece for the night!! It won him £150 worth of Art materials from Winsor & Newton. Congratulations David!! This is another award well deserved!

Luis working on his self Portrait-It was used for a demo earlier on the day.

Luis Palette-note the number of colours- not so many, but he always produces loads of mixtures from this simple palette!

Luis' painting on the night-I love the sense of space!


Titus with his painting

This is Titus' painting box- look out for those alkyd oil paints- he uses the fast drying colours- NB-He paints only with various palette knives.
