Still Life with a White Mug

The Under Painting Still Life with a White Mug

The under-painting of the Still Life with a White Mug after Chardin was created using the traditional method of using Bistre but as an oil paint rather than an ink.

Adding the Colour

Adding the colour to the under painting is a skill in its self, it is important to lay the glazing layers extremely thin and translucent in order to view the value in the under painting that was created by the Bistre  it is also important to make sure the Bistre under painting is completely dry before attempting to ad the glazing colour.

Value over Colour

The most important thing in this painting is the value over the colour, you can paint anything in any colour so long as the value is correct, it is the value within the painting that gives you the vision.

Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin

Considered the master of still life, had a great understanding of the value within the composition and was able to add colour but maintain the defined focus on the painting.

The Colours used
Viridian Green Hue, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Vermilion, Ivory Black and Turner Bistre Oil.

The process of painting Still Life with a White Mug

The process of creating the painting is to start with a gesso primed support followed by an imprimatura, than a sketch, be it in pencil or paint, then completing the under painting in Bistre and after it is completely dry adding the colour glazing in-order to create the perfect painting.

There is always something to learn from copying the masters.

Bistre Under Painting

Still Life with a White Mug Under Painting

Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin 

Known as the master of still life, he was born in Paris on 2nd November 1699

Painting an under painting

This copy of Still Life with a White Mug under painting was carried out using Turner Bistre Oil Paint many of the great master painters would carry out an under painting in Bistre and then put glazing coats over the top, the under painting must be completely dry before attempting  colour glazing to create the perfect painting.

Creating an under painting

When creating an under painting in the manner of the great masters, it is essential to make sure your support, be it canvas or panel is completely gessoed ready for painting, remember to cover the support with at least 4 coats of gesso with each coat spreading in alternative directions.

The process

Once the support is completely dry you can cover it with an imprimatura this is the first paint layer or the colour beginning and means to spread a thin layer of transparent paint over the whole support. next you can complete the sketch in graphite or paint and then work on the darkest dark’s and the lightest lights, gradually working through the mid tones, remember there are normally ten values in a painting and the more you use the more realistic the painting will look.

Turner Bistre Oil

Turner Bistre Oil paint is the only Bistre Oil Paint available in the world and can be obtained from a selected few suppliers, check out Turner Artist Colours where you can find a supplier or go to the Turners Painting School Bistre.

Good luck with your paintings and most importantly, “Enjoy”.

Using Turner Bistre Oil Colour

To carry out a task like the Turner Bistre Oil Painting of Glass of Water and Coffee Pot, start using Turner Bistre Oil Colour as in this example of the painting after Chardin in 1760, all one needs it the Turner Bistre Oil paint, a tiny amount of White and a Spot of Black, the importance of creating a painting is that you must understand the values in the painting and the object more that anything ells, some people like to squint their eyes when looking at the subject that is to be painted, this is common practice, however there are many different ways of doing this from using a glass filter at in our modern day of apps one can use an app like Value Viewer or AccuView. I personally try to just look at the object and see the values as they are, this way I train my eye to recognise value at a glance in almost anything, just take a look at the Turner Bistre Oil painting of  Glass of water and coffee pot

Seeing Value

If you are new to the subject or just starting to realise the importance of value in a painting or even a small sketch, then start by looking at the clouds and try to figure out how different they are in light and dark, then put on some sunglasses and take a further look and you will start to notice the difference, continue to practice and once you start to get the feel for it, start to look at a landscape in exactly the same manner, be sure to try to see the different values without the sunglasses and then try the sunglasses, take a look at the still life of the Turner Bistre Oil painting Glass of Water and Coffee pot.

What is Bistre

Bistre has been used as far back as the 14th century as an ink, but was 1st written in English the 17th century, known artist to have used Bistre ink are many including, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Gainsborough and many more.

What is New about Bistre

Marc A Turner has created the all new Turner bistre Oil Colour, this modern day creation of a traditional  artist product is a move forwards in traditional painting that includes a modern approach to the traditions of the old master Painters, Turner bistre Oil gives you the opportunity to create modern works using old techniques.

Marc A Turner Art Exhibition Over Land and Sea

The inspiration

The inspiration for the name of this Marc A Turner Art Exhibition Over Land and Sea currently being shown at the Castle Park Art Centre was due to a trip to Bruges to collect a 1999 T-reg Audi Quarto, the journey began with a walk to the train station to take a train to Manchester Airport England, a quick flight to Brussels and a hire car to Bruges, we had a wonderful overnight stay in the Martins Hotel and then collect the car and take a wonderful drive to Calais where we caught the ferry to Dover, the final drive back to Warrington with many thoughts rushing through my head, hence “Over Land and Sea”.

Portfolio

This portfolio of the Marc a Turner Art Exhibition Over Land and Sea at Castle Park Arts Centre walks you through the exhibition to give you a glance at some of the work on show, please enjoy the attached photos with a short explanation of the work.

Over Land and Sea

Over Land and Sea

This painting Over Land and Sea is the painting that was my vision partly during the journey from Bruges, it is a vision of many of the scenes that I have been lucky enough to view whilst traveling, the image is a display over land and sea with the beautiful shine of the sun glowing through the light clouds and reflecting on the land and sea.

At Sea

And Sea (2)

At Sea is part of the Exhibition and one of my favourite ways to paint, I have always been inspired by painters like JMW Turner and Charles Brooking, this is  a method of painting that takes quite a long time to achieve a result, but is one of the most satisfying ways to paint.

Places I’ve lived

Places Iv lived (2)

These paintings are of Places I’ve Lived, that have inspired me to paint, as you can see they are of different parts of the world that I have been lucky enough to have lived, there is a saying that being well traveled is like being well read, I have a major problem reading and writing but I have the eye of a well travelled artist and I believe I portray just that.

After the Masters

After Turner (2)

This selection of paintings are After JWM Turner, they are part of my After the Masters series of paintings and relate to the Over Land and Sea in many ways, JWM Turner travelled and painter Over Land and Sea and I have spent many years making copies of his work in order to learn from one of the Greatest Painters the world has ever known. I often teach other painters how to use the same techniques as the Great Master Painters like JWM Turner.

After Van Gogh

Landscape with Green Corn

This painting after Vincent Van Gogh of Landscape with Green Corn was carried out on one of my workshops of painting like the Masters which was a great success and the standard achieved by everyone was very pleasing.

Painting in the Garden

Plein air at GHWG (2)

Painting in the Garden was carried out En Plein Air in Grappenhall Hays Walled Gardens during a one day course to support the Gardens, this event may take place Annually.

Landscape in the colour spectrum

Landskape in the colour spectrim (2)Landscape in the colour spectrum is a simple way for me to practice looking at the effect of different lite and colour combinations and to practice tonal value at the same time, this gives me the confidence to realise what colour would be best suited in a given situation to create the best atmosphere for the painting.

The Quad

The Quad

There are 4 small paintings that have a lot to do with over land and sea, I was lucky enough to see the space shuttle flying over my home one night and I thought how amazing it would be if one could be up there and looking down, it played on my mind and I then saw a photo that someone had made with a shadow behind it, I went to my studio and painted four paintings each with a different meaning and here are tree of them.

The Painting Medium in Turner Artist Oil Colours

The only mediums used to create all of the work was the Turner Artist Oil Colours, and the supports are a variation of panel and canvas all of varying sizes, details of the Turner colours can be found at: www.turnerartistcolours.com  Turner artist oil paints are manufactured in a traditional way and are of the finest quality Refined linseed oil and pure quality pigments.

Tatton Park Lilly pond Landscape in oils

Tatton Park Lilly pond was painted by Marc A Turner in oils on canvas, the inspiration came from a visit to Tatton Park to carry out Plein air sketching with the Warrington art group, initially the sketch was done as a notan in graphite with a supporting photo and some notes of the direction of the sun and where I wanted to have the focal paint, the weather which was extremely bright on this day made all the trees and the water shimmer, it was quite amazing.

Tatton Lilly pond

Tatton Park Gardens

The painting was made using a canvas support with 4 coats of gesso, then an imprimatura followed by a light sketch, the painting beginning was done using the Turner artist oil colours using cool and warm blues, greens and yellows with the addition of the New Turner Bistre Oil to manage the Values within the painting, the most important aspect of carrying out a painting like this is to get your values correct straight from the beginning.

Tatton Art Exhibition

The painting of Tatton Park Lilly Pond is to be displayed in the Tatton Art Exhibition, (Warrington Art Group Annual Event), from Sunday 20th August until Saturday 3rd September and all the paintings will be on sale unless stated otherwise. The exhibition is being held in the Rotherne Room, the 1st building on your left as you entre the courtyard from the carpark, we are up stairs and it will be well worth the clime up the few steps to see.  The exhibition is also certain to inspire you to take a walk around the beautiful Tatton Gardens to get some inspiration or just feel the tranquility of an amazing place.
