The Griffin's heads at Wallington are well known around the area and I wanted to focus on just one for this painting. I have left the hall very soft and hazy in the background as the griffin was the focus. I sprayed paint on last using my finger on the brush to achieve the mottled stone effect.
I did draw out the main features on the head first, measuring out with my pencil as I wanted to get the proportions correct. What do you think of him?
Here are the progress steps :-)
If you like this painting, you could own a card or print by buying one from my website.
Thanks for looking, Gillian.
