This one was done from the beach a few minutes walk from my house in Brighton Le Sands. Oil on canvas.
And this one was done in the pouring rain from up the coast on the same shoreline… the same huge refinery is kind of visible, but it was raining so hard that my pallette box was actually half a centimetre underwater by the end… the painting was streaming with water all the way through.
Been a bit inspired by Min Yum’s latest artworks… Did something that was a bit more fun with brushes and colours than usual… loosening up a bit.
Something I did in a bit of a rush for the Gorilla Artfare book. Im sad I had to rush it, but thats life!
A quick sketch I did cause I like storm clouds…
and more sketchbook stuff, some cool, some cruddy:
Just playing with random marks and seeing what came from them…
Iv been a bit inspired to play with type again so I thought I would bring some into a painting inspired by some shoot photos I found of Angalina Jolie in 1920′s getup.
Here are some Paintings I did on my nintendo DS in the new and old versions of colors…
A forest stream nearby where I am staying.
A plant in a window of the cafe I had brakfast in yesterday
Another part of that same forest walk
A DS painting I did from memory of the lake… the oil is further down in a previous post.
and finally, a study from a photo I took in the galapagos.
I have been trying to work on big simple shape compositions… here is something that came out of explaining an idea I had.
Here is a plein air oil painting I did on a recent holiday… It was fun! I think I paint a bit thin though, but time will improve it all. Such a peaceful place.
I have been painting like a nutter at work, so here are some of my morning warmups to get into the good-painting-zone. I have found these studies really reduce the amount of ‘erase, start again’ that always happen when you try paint without being in the right mindset.
This is a study of a Zhaoming Wu Painting… so inspiring!
A quick still life… honing those painting skillz. I am amazed by how much you can learn by trying to paint a tissue.
And whilst showin a workmate some painting techniques… and being asked to put eyes on it, this happened….
This is the by-product of a study I did for something at work. I imagined arriving at this place bag in hand expecting a nice hotel… lets hope it never happens!
A new one… somewhat different direction… more character based. Bit clishe, but fun none the less! Im drawing lots still, just not scanning much. This one all PS.
Something evil this time…
a quick speedy
