After a day of drawing, and a total of three days of painting, I’ve finally completed my final piece canvas painting on Lord Tennyson’s statue. Using eight years of experience using acrylic paints on small plastic models, my skills and knowledge on using best out of acrylic painting would help me to paint to this degree of skill.

I’ve tried to keep away from using greys for the statue colours, as I wanted to try a small highlight of colours to show more depth and contrast to the facial expression and clothing highlights. Whilst some would disagree with this choice (totally fine by me if you disagree), but I thought I’d try it out and leave my comfort zone. I think it’s paid off with the final outcome, thanks to all of my previous practice sample canvas paintings that I’ve done.

Christmas card sale

Great news! If your traveling to Lincoln for the ‘Lincoln Christmas Market’ event, I’ll be having this painting printed as Xmas cards for my Colleges pop up shop. The dates are from the 7th to the 9th of December. I’ll be showing what my Xmas card product will look like, as well as the location and price on a new post coming soon.


Thank you for reading this post. If you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thanks!
