Jeremy LIPKING demonstration, Yorkshire


Welcome to yorkshire and welcome to Rosemary & Co this evening We’ve got the pleasure of welcoming one of my best friends and the Master Painter Jeremy Lipking he’ll be painting my childhood friend Danielle have a lovely evening and welcome And so the first thing, I’m just gonna do is just put a wash of ivory black Just want to put that on there and just let it let it set up a little bit let it dry a little So also feel free to ask questions as I’m painting I don’t really mind I mean if it’s if it gets too crazy, I might just start ignoring but You know once I get to the hard parts I start to get a little more quiet But even if that happens feel free to ask questions. Have you already decided to paint on the vertical? No, not really. I mean I probably will but really I may have a general idea of the pose. We’re going to do because we talked about a little bit earlier, but So most likely but but not really I just I guess just by default when I’m doing like a portrait or upper body I just do it vertical Just put the panel’s vertical on the easel. Now rotate your shoulders a little bit more and then look opposite direction like kind of down towards the camera. You know typically, I’ll set the model up so I’m looking over the left side of the canvas but just just because where the projector is and the models sat and everything it just happens to be this way, but Yeah how does that feel, does that feel comfortable?
Yeah Yeah Lets, lets go with that. Thanks for modelling Danielle Thats ok I’m glad its nice weather Yeah Mate it was going to be out doors regardless. I know raining So I like this the black wash I put on I like it to be Pretty fresh, but you know I don’t like to be really slick where you know the first stroke I put on just kind of slips around. Just want to let that dry a little bit But I do like when it’s you know I don’t like to do this in advance and let it completely dry I kind of like where the first few layers of paint mix with that black. I’ve done a lot of out door paintings, but I don’t think I’ve ever done a like a like a portrait or figure demo kind of like this. The lights, I love this kind of light this is the kind of light I paint in a lot and it’s it’s really soft obviously. Maybe a little softer than I normally paint we still have some shadows and just Everything is just much more subtle, if you are used to painting under like a spotlight. It’s I mean it just seems really really jarring just to get the light and dark shapes down. So right about now. I’m going to start using a little thicker paint. Just so I can Just so I don’t have to wait for it to to set up you know we’re kind of we’re kind of quick. We don’t know if its going to rain or if the horse is going to you know… fall down off the edge. Is the horse above me? Not right now but it was earlier. But I mean the thing is that outdoors when you’re on location outdoors anything can happen so yeah. It’s good to be a little prepared to have to finish a little quicker than normal. Obviously it still looks dark her face when you look at her looks light against that dark wall So you just have to ignore the gray just trust me it will look better later. Just you know the reason. I don’t put that, put a dark there’s just I’m not really prepared to paint it yet I’m not really sure how exactly I’ll paint those bricks in the background. If I’m really going to get in there and render some or just just leave it blank or just kind of suggest, so I’m not really sure yet. Guess I could if it’s really bothering me I could always put just a little bit of her hair, and I’m seeing a little bit of her hair on the right side of the face. It’s pretty dark not really black, but is quite dark Teddy you naughty boy, come on come on. So once you’ve established the proportions is the main emphasis in your mind on, you know the tonal values Hot and cool colours you know the warm and cool colours? Yeah, well, I’m trying to like in a quicker painting like this. I’m trying to do a little bit of all those all at all once um. I mean I did put I mean did the proportions in the face pretty quick, but the You know other than like that those indicating like the size of the head You know I didn’t really do much. I just kind of indicated where You know like just like one head lengths down. Yeah Just just so once I got there I knew You know I could measure and see like where that one head length down comes on her breasts and use that as like a measurement So but I’m but I guess I’m kind of kind of doing and all all at once trying to get like The right values and the right colour yeah And proportions to save time. Thank you What? oh the necklace I forgot the, yeah, she’s right. I forgot the necklace i’ll do that later tho.
