Oil painting (on board) by Ted Hircock

Ted is a student of mine and I am proud to share his latest painting with you.  He has delicately handled this subject layering transparent glazes of colour.  Well done Ted.

Venice in ‘soft pastel medium’

"Venice" (soft pastel)

  (Left: Detail)

Just finished this painting today.  I limited my palette by putting the pastels that I was using, in a separate box for the duration of the work.  I have played flecks of cool colours in the warm areas and visa versa.  I used quite an abrasive sandpaper of a mid tone grey for the foundation, this let me apply quite a bit of pastel. 

It will be exhibited at the Melbourne Women Painters & Sculptors exhibition to be held from June 27th at the Victorian Artists Society, 430 Albert Street, East Melbourne, Vic. Australia.
