I’m enjoying this one very much. Currently illustrating a children’s picture book for the wonderful Robin Adolphs. I get to indulge my passion for drawing/painting animals and trees and roots and things. Bliss… (medium- watercolour
Hi all, I’m currently in the early throes of marketing the Fantasy Artroom book and to mark the occasion, I’d like to make special offer of making a sketch inside each copy of the book purchased within the next month. This offer is extended to anyone who mentions that they saw this post.
the cost of the book (including postage) is $30.00 (Australian) to Australian residents and $35.00 (Australian) to anywhere else in the world.
Interior pages (and more info) can be viewed here:
Saw heaps of miniatures floating around on Facebook yesterday, thought I’d have a go myself. Had a great time painting these…
They’re available for sale (along with many others)on my ART FOT SALE website if anybody’s interested:
With everything I’ve been up to lately, not too much over the past week has included artwork, I needed to get the acrylics out and make some mess in my studio, here’s what I’m scratching away at right now…
I currently have a #competition running over at my #facebook page for my ‘Fantasy Artroom’ project, I’m offering an original drawing (see attached) to anyone who posts or reposts the #kickstarter link to their wall. Every little helps. If you aren’t a FB friend, feel free to send a request through, I’d be very happy to see you there.
Just a quick heads up…
My kickstarter ‘How To’ book goes live on the 15th November, If you’d like to find out what it’s all about, I’ll post the video here on that date, feel free to back it, repost the video, pass around details etc… I think this is going to be a good one!
Here’s a private commission I’m currently working on, this one’s right up my alley, very much enjoying it so far, the medium (at this point) is watercolour, I may move over to acrylics along the track…
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 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. (oils).
Here’s the digital rough for a new painting, it’s great to work an image out in this way, irons out the kinks etc. Of course, things’ll change between this and the painting (to be tackled in acrylics)… the model is the very lovely Janna-
I’ve spent 3-4 hours on this one since the last post and a client has just gotten back to me with a change that needs to be made to an illustration sooo (real work’s calling)… here’s where this one stands right now… The model is the wonderful Ida – mizzd-stock.deviantart.com
here’s my newest painting (so far). I’ve decided to pull my finger out and paint some canvases, I miss the freeing aspects of painting this way, I sit down for far too long every day, whether it be in front of the computer-working digitally, or scratching away at a pen and ink drawing… Waving ones arms around with a brush loaded with paint is a very fun diversion. I spent 6-7 hours on this one yesterday, I’m hoping to do the same today. Will post progress shots as I go…
The model is the lovely Ida (mizzd-stock.deviantart.com)
