I’m very much enjoying this new little exercise I’m practicing as often as time allows. Seeing and studying everyday objects is a great way to warm up and it helps the eyes look for subtleties in subjects we may otherwise never notice. I really recommend this…
This little painting took approximately 12 minutes.
Winsor and Newton watercolours on Arches 300gsm Hot press.
Every now and again I’ll have a root through my hard drives, looking for something and come across an old drawing or painting I’ve filed away. I found this one and thought I’d post it here. It harks back to the days when I spent a lot of time painting and drawing wildlife. this one’s an eastern Water Dragon from here in Australia… (watercolour/gouache)
I’m working digitally on most of my commissioned work at the moment which always leaves me desperate to paint traditionally, I satisfied that urge in front of the telly last night with my watercolours, painting this small scene- 5 1/2 x 4″. (It’ll appear larger here than the original.)
I’m currently in the process of putting a new blog together. It’ll house many of the sketches, drawings, paintings and hand-coloured line art I have for sale. I’m having a studio clear out and will offer the artwork at fabulous prices. I’ll post the details here in a day or two, so if you’re interested in snagging a bargain, keep your eyes peeled!
