Watercolour Warmup From This Morning…

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.

Watercolour Warmups…

As I’ve been working on my most recent children’s book in watercolour, it stands to reason that I should get into the right frame of mind with a loosening up session. I painted both of these this morning, both very enjoyable. I’ll do this more often…

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

The Fantasy Artroom.

It’s been a little while since I posted about my new book here. The Fantasy artroom has been winging it’s way around the globe for 3-4 months, and right now, I’m in the process of putting a youtube channel together, I’ve updated the website, I now have the Facebook page up and running. Can I ask, if you like what you see, or if you’ve bought a copy of the book, that you spread the word. I’m hoping the project grows into more publications, more How To’ videos and more workshops. If you’d like to find out more, check out these links:
