I have returned to doing some pop portraits, just to fill the time, and experimenting with some new techniques.
I may sell prints of these in the future, lets see shall we?
Hello. I have just opened a new online shop, selling instant downloads of my portraits of famous rock/pop stars! each download contains one jpeg, one PDF, and a printing guideline info sheet. Each image is 300dpi, so you cab get really high res print outs.
You can print at home, or take to your local print shop. They can be reprinted as many times as you wish, for personal use. Thanks, and happy shopping.
Today’s Star line up is Jimi Hendrix and Robert Smith. I will be opening a new Etsy store very soon, where you can purchase these images and more.. I will keep you posted.
Hello, Just a short note to say that Man With Chicken, is now on sale at a limited supply on Etsy. Ohh has been a toughie doing this, more of a restoration job, more than anything. Anyhow more info below.
Been a few weeks since my last post, as been busy painting.. It is an idea I have had for a number of years now, but to be honest I could not Compose it well… (several bad attempts). My focus on this piece is of history and time.. and to the point, the motion of time passing, and captured.. which to my thinking is a huge concept. I am intrigued by old photographs, and snapshots in time.. that I have explored previously In the works, “Sticky Back Plastic” and “Eyemouth”. This time, I wanted something that was past tense, but still relevant or current to the self now.
I am lucky Enough to live in a vibrant city, famous for it’s Urban Expressionist , Graffiti , and street artists, and particular to where I live there is art on public walls and Band Posters/Flyers pasted everywhere. I have tried to capture an elegant time, imagining Spending time with Otto Dix, and wandering around Berlin with fly Posters half ripped from walls.. litter on the street.. dirty walls.. and seedy venues.. so I painted “Down And Out In Berlin, With Otto Dix”
24″ x 30″ Acrylic, Emulsion, Paper, Pastel, Charcoal, PVA, on Canvas.
One other bit of info , is that I am now on the excellent “behance” art website!! I really love it.. and the wealth of art on show is just mind boggling! click link to have a look at my page.
Just finished this painting, (13/04/12). “School Work Part 1″ Acrylic and emulsion on canvas 24″ x 30”
A little more graphic . I blame my fantastic new brushes, For the first time I have used bigger brushes, in tighter spaces. (usually I use fine tipped brushes for the face). So this time, I went through a HUGE mental block, and the colours , have changed from grey/greens, thru to deep reds, and ended up with the finished result below. I have included a close up, and the prep work as well. And ALSO I painted in My Lounge this time as the light has been really kind to me , and my front room has been bathed in a great light the last few weeks. and I get to be near my beloved Turntable, so this painting was done , listening to a lot of Blunt and copeland tracks (Hype Williams) and some Old Apparatus and the like. Anyway very very pleased with this, looks great in the flesh, and will take a better pic , when i can borrow my friends Canon 550D next time.
