Oil Painting…

I often have something on the go I just add a little to here and there. This one’s been sitting for a while. I find it very enjoyable to tinker in between other things, watching it slowly evolve… (oil on panel) .

The model for the figure is the very lovely Alexandra- http://sitara-leotastock.deviantart.com sea5_sml

More mermaids…

Working on another mermaid for the ‘Fantasy Artroom’ book. Really enjoying this one. Using watercolours on Arches 300gsm hot pressed watercolour paper here…

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.
