Some Progress…

I’ve been scratching away at this one for 2-3 years. And recently scanned in the original acrylic/oil painting and continued working on it digitally. It’s close but not quite finished yet. Here it is as it stands right now….

Wildflowers- Some Progress…

I started work on this one months ago, have recently been tinkering with it, very happy to have the oils out on it now as I went as far as I could with acrylics, which is great for the underlayers, but the oils somehow make the painting come alive, as well as being beautiful to work with- Here’s how it’s looking so far…

The Stream- Update…

I haven’t posted the progress of this one here for a while. Here’s how it’s looking right now. I tried to have it finished for Christmas (it’s a gift for somebody) but I didn’t make that deadline. Still, it’s coming together nicely, shouldn’t be too much longer…

Rockpool in Watercolour…

Just tried this current watercolour out in a frame I had laying around. Just so happens it was a perfect fit. Happhappy…

Will sell this when it’s completed if anybody’s interested.

Close Up…

In between commissions and everything else I do, I’ve been scratching away at this painting. Here’s a close -up, will post the finished article as and when.

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.

Into The Woods…

I first started workon this one 3-4 years ago, it’s been sitting in the corner of my studio ever since calling at me, I finally feel as though the time is right to get back onto it. Here’s what’s happening with it so far… (oils).

Work In Progress…

I have a lot of stuff happening right now. If you’ve seen any of my recent posts you’ll know I have an exhibition coming up. I’ve been absolutely inspired lately and am playing things by ear. I haven’t made a shortlist of art to exhibit yet so I’m frantically painting away to see which ones resonate the most with me. I started this one earlier this morning and have spent approx. 4 hours on it so far, the fact that I’ve done this much in such a short space of time leads me to conclude that I’ll probably be exhibiting this. (oils).

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.

Update…

I’ve spent 3-4 hours on this one since the last post and a client has just gotten back to me with a change that needs to be made to an illustration sooo (real work’s calling)… here’s where this one stands right now… The model is the wonderful Ida – mizzd-stock.deviantart.com
