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…

Mythical Doodles…

I’ve just been going through my files and have come across these in amongst a whole heap of things I forgot about. The first one was a watercolour painting I wasn’t particularly happy with, but I’ve greyscaled him and can look at it now, the second is a Centaur from a project I’ve had to abandon due to work commitments, hopefully I’ll be able to pick it up again at some point.

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…

Eastern Water Dragon…

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)
