Winding Down For The Day…

…with an oil sketch. I took the reference photo for this one whilst I was on holiday in the UK. It’s lovely after a long day of working tightly on my illustrative work. Throwing one’s arms about like a madman can be very therapeutic…

In Progress…

I’m enjoying working with watercolour at the moment, but finding scanning/taking working pics increasingly frustrating. With this one, I scanned the originalĀ  artĀ  in and am finishing it off digitally. I’m not a fan of the digital ‘look’, all that slick, shiny stuff doesn’t do it for me personally. It’s always my goal to have my art, whether trad. or digital, have something of an organic look about it.

here I’m adding the line work in Sketchbook Pro. Great program, very intuitive…

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) .
