Barnacle geese, stage 1 - This will be an acrylic painting of part of a flock of barnacle geese coming in to land in a field on the Inner Hebridean island of Islay. On a tinted background I have started to rough in a few bird shapes and have indicated where certain horizontal elements of the background will be positioned. I always draw directly with the paint - it is so much quicker and freer and it allows one to rapidly block in areas of tone. It is also easier to wipe off than it is to rub out pencil lines.

Great blog Chris. I'm a frequent, if silent, visitor!

I wonder if you can tell me what factors determine whether you use oils or acrylics. Does the subject matter dictate which medium you use or is just how you're feeling on the day?

Hi Peter, sorry for the delay in replying - I've been so wrapped up in painting I haven't been updating the blog.
I chose acrylics (or oils) for two main reasons; 1)sometimes a subject will be easier to paint in one or other medium - these barnacle geese for example will involve a lot of delicate and fine brushwork with all the markings etc., which is easier with acrylics, and 2)the visual qualities of the two paint mediums will suggest one or other - again with these barnacles I wanted a fairly cold, brittle, flat feel to this winter's day which suggested acrylics to me whereas oils have a luciousness, a richness to them that lends them well to other subjects.
Keep watching!
Thanks for your interest.
