Updates from Chrissie Richards's studio

  • Making a painting

    Lately I have changed the way that I work following an intensive art course I have taken called The Creative Visionary Program with Nicholas Wilton of Art2life. It has radically altered the way that I create paintings. Rather than plan and compose a painting it starts by just playing and seeing where that takes me. At the outset there is no plan or outcome in mind. Paint, collage, pastel, charcoal and graphite amongst other materials are laid down layer after layer until an idea or image emerges. I am particularly drawn to colour, shapes and texture. So I put something down and then add something in response to what is in front of me. When it stops working or being interesting I move onto something else. Working on multiple pieces at once enables each piece to inform the others. Mostly I paint on boards or canvas building up many layers. When a piece is finished it is glazed and finished with wax to give it a lovely rich creamy finish.

    I love it when my artwork gets the nod of approval, this time it was from my dog Ruff.

    Oh dear, I am a very untidy artist and about once a year I have to spend a day organising, filing and cleaning, how very dull.
