Tonight’s sketchings…

I had a loooong day in the studio working on commissioned stuff today, consequently, my eye and brain were sufficiently tuned enough to work directly onto the paper using an old biro to draw this doodle in front of the telly this evening…

Elfmother…

I’ve just been commissioned to paint a ‘real’ version of this old digital painting. I’ll probably be using watercolour and gouache and I’m very much looking forward to it. I thought I’d add the steps I take to get to the final image here.

Here’s the drawing transferred onto a sheet of tracing paper, ready to lay onto the sheet of watercolour paper…

Work In Progress…

I have a lot of stuff happening right now. If you’ve seen any of my recent posts you’ll know I have an exhibition coming up. I’ve been absolutely inspired lately and am playing things by ear. I haven’t made a shortlist of art to exhibit yet so I’m frantically painting away to see which ones resonate the most with me. I started this one earlier this morning and have spent approx. 4 hours on it so far, the fact that I’ve done this much in such a short space of time leads me to conclude that I’ll probably be exhibiting this.

Pigeon Rider…. finished.

Spent a few hours on this one last night and a few minutes finishing it off this morning. Posted it up on Facebook and it sold within minutes. Isn’t the internet wonderful!
