New Painting: Green Bird

New Painting: Green Bird

I have a new drawing to share (see below); this was created with pencil, pastel and digital painting…whilst listening (that’s right!) to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Audio books are a great way to read whilst getting other things done! Although, you don’t have the pleasure of a wonderful book cover, which in all …

New Drawing: The Bear in the Beret!

        Hello, happy March! It’s been a busy few months, I’ve been completing a few commissions, but now I’ve had some time to create some brand new drawings which I shall be introducing you to in my next few blogs. So here is my new creation…the Bear in the Beret! He was drawn …

Growth [New Artwork]

Growth [New Artwork]

      I’ve been sketching a lot lately, and I’ve created a rather strange drawing that I’ve aptly (in my opinion!) titled; Growth. Of course, it is just a sketch at the moment but I’m hoping to refine it and create a fairly large drawing from it. But for now let me introduce you …

Mr Fox Gets Colour!

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything new and technically this is just a colour of an older drawing…it’s not finished either but as you all know (unless you’ve never visited before) I like to show the creation of my work in stages..so y’all should come back 😉

In other news I’m getting a new computer so you can expect more work to appear over the next few weeks and months. I shall be updating my site – it’s all very exciting isn’t it?

A3 Prints and Owl Potraits

A3 Prints and Owl Potraits

Well it has been a while since I have posted an actual long blog post, sorry about that I’ve been rather busy!

Good news, I now have an A3 printer it is absolutely fantastic! Now I can make some really high quality prints and originals as some of my work has never been seen physically on paper. The plan is to print, frame, and exhibit. I missed something important off that list…oh yeah, sell. My online shop has been bare for quite a while, well that is about to change…well in the next week or so.

Black and White Version

This image looks particularly good in A3 both the colour version seen on this http://graceowenart.com/gallery-2/wildlife/ page so I shall be doing some lovely, high quality prints of this image. At the moment I am creating more wildlife art than fairy art, but I always like to create something a bit mystical or magical about the paintings I do so, I’m never too far away from the wonderful world of fantasy. I do love Imagine FX (a magazine dedicated to fantasy art)

Anyway, do keep checking back for more art etc and I’ll reveal when my shop is launched with all its new stock! Yay!

It’s Bleeting Brilliant – Painting in Progress

There are some things in this country (England) that you cannot avoid if you are going on a car journey, yes you guessed it…sheep! (you probably didn’t think I would say that did you?) Fields full with flocks of fluffy sheep flash past the window when whizzing down the motorway. It should be the time …
