Keeping up the Momentum

Now that I have started drawing again, I really want to keep up the momentum.  It's a bit difficult at the moment as I have the wrong kind of brush in my hand with the wrong kind of paint!  It's not wrong for my house, which is looking much brighter but more looking forward to doing some new artwork for the walls instead of just painting them. My latest dra[...]

Storm – Complete Drawing

I gave you a sneak peak of this drawing in my last blog post but thought you might like to see the finished result. This is from a photograph I took a couple of years ago.  I spent a happy day here http://www.lakedistrictwildlifepark.co.uk/ trying to photograph the zebras.  They had a wonderful compound that was huge - too big for my zoom lense so I waited 5 hou[...]

I have been a few times and love the f[...]

House – Hugh Laurie

One of the areas I really want to explore this year is human portraiture.  I am totally fascinated with it especially after watching the Sky Portrait Artist of the Year.  That series left me totally inspired, it was nice to see an art show that portrayed truly talented artists. I also did a portrait with the art group who are kind enough to put up with me once a[...]

Alfie

I consider myself very fortunate that I can draw beautiful creatures of all shapes and sizes and I love nothing more than seeing the reaction of the recipients.  When the portraits are for gifts I don't always get that reaction so when this portrait for my sister-in-law's niece was to be delivered I gave strict instructions for the reaction to be captured on film.  [...]
