Sylvia’s Itch and Scribbling Away In The Corner…

Went to the book launch for my latest illustrated book yesterday, entitled ‘Sylvia’s Itch’, about a pair of Australian sugar gliders. Had a great time catching up with and meeting new people…

I painted this canvas whilst I was there. Managed to scratch something coherent out in the time I spent on it… Can’t wait to get on and finish it. (acrylics)

The book (btw) is available from the lovely Robin Adolphs:

AVAILABLE FOR COMMISSIONS…

Christmas time is (almost) upon us, although the shops’ll have you believe it was already here.

I’m available for one off commissions, so if there’s anything you’d like drawn or painted, let me know. Reasonable rates of course, most things considered (except portraits). PM with your details. I’ll only be available until I’m swamped…

Back To Realism…

And I had a GREAT time painting this.
It’s been a while since I got out the acylics and painted anything this detailed. I miss it. Used to do it all the time. May do some more (chuckles).
This one’s currently up for sale on my ‘ART FOR SALE’ website, see here for the link:

Scratched Away At This Some More….

Moving into the fine details now… having to focus and not only look at the image as a whole, see how it all fits together, but also having to home in on those areas that require attention, and there are still many, many more. I’ll be putting this to one side for a day or two and look at it with fresh eyes.
