Oil Painting of Dinham Bridge (Repeat commission)
Last month I delivered a repeat comission – an oil painting, on canvas, showing one of the Ludlow bridges.
For this oil painting I chose Dinham Bridge, this time in the morning, viewed a little further down stream than the previous work.
The Bread Walk is a path on the west or south-west side of the river Teme outside Ludlow. The bridge here is Dinham Bridge which leads into the town, toward the castle.
Oil painting techniques used
The work is oil on canvas, mainly applied with a pallette knife – or a range of knives, and in one patch, scratched back (sgraffito) with a fork! Apart from the ground (oil primer) and a little glazing to help harmonize the colours and improve the water at the end I didn’t use a brush in this piece. The canvas I stretched myself.
