The Osprey and the Fish – Colour

Hi everyone, another quick post to show you what I’ve been up to lately. as you know, a couple of days ago I posted this drawing; Well, today I decided I would paint it (digitally of course) so, here is another one of my many painting in progress posts. Here (above) is what it looks …

Traditional Vs Digital!

Traditional Vs Digital!

Morning all, Now as you know I am a convert to digital painting but I like to keep that traditional style. (well I think I do anyway) My main reason for going digital is because of the MAMMOTH mess I make whilst painting – seriously there was a time when all of my clothes had …

Is that a…Wizard Bird?

Is that a…Wizard Bird?

Is that a...WIzard Bird?

This magical little bird appeared to me in doodle form on a slow day at work. He has since been sketched (as you can see) and is currently being brought to life on my computer screen. I am thinking of some exciting stories about him, although I’m yet to give him a name, poor bird. He looks happy enough at the moment.

That’s it from me tonight, short and sweet. I’ve been ill with a bad cold so forgive me AND there will be more exciting posts soon!

Sketches Galore!

Sketches Galore!

Howdy Folks, I’ve been sketching away over the last couple of days, just getting a few ideas together for some more digital wildlife paintings. Generally, this is how I start an artwork, I’ll create an initial sketch, refine the drawing then scan it in for painting. Although, I do love drawings as stand alone artwork …

Barn Owl (New Painting - in Progress)

Following my recent trend of digitalising (probs not a word) some of my old drawings..here is the Barn Owl. He isn’t finished at the moment but thought you might be interested in how it was coming along. I am yet to do some major detail work on the wings, it should be fun…yet challenging. You’d think as an artist I would be patient…no. I am not, it’s why digital work seems to be working for me there is no waiting for layers to dry…but I don’t think staring at screens is particularly good for your eyesight. I love drawing and WILL always start my art with drawing but hand with a good old fashioned pencil first.

Well, I’ve rambled on long enough I hope you like it and I’ll post the finished version ASAP.

Kingfisher (New Painting)

I digitally painted this image from a pastel drawing I had created a while ago. I love reworking traditional pieces I have made with Photoshop painting…I love it because I don’t get as messy and I don’t have to wait for things to dry. I am impatient to see the finished result! Oh dear.
