Interior Concept

I was stuck for ideas so I used a random word genorator I found basically you click start & it gives you a random sentence.  So I did a few ideas then picked 2 & drew up the backgrounds for them.  It was good to do as I needed some interiors to practice with.  I'm quite happy with the results for a first time interiors!

Value Study

I didn't like how this turned out or maybe I'm just feeling these studies are starting to look the same.  I think on the next one I'm going to use a different brush & see how I go.

Paint Study

Not too happy with this one.

Thursday, 14 June 2012


I applied to get into the Imaginism Workshop back in Nov 2011! They only got back to me in the last month to have an interview.  The interview went really well but I wasn't chosen for the Oct workshop but I was called back for a place in the Jan 2013 workshop!!!!  So Jan 05 2013 I'll be off to Toronto for a month (very scary! for me) to learn loads of new stuff & hopefully make some life long friends.

I'm really looking forward to learning from Thierry, he seems like a nice bloke.  I'm also really excited to finally find a decent place to learn to paint using paints!!!!  I'll be posting updates as much as I can when I go so keep checking back peeps.

Thanks for the support


Paint Study

I did this last week I'm quite pleased how it turned out!  The original model photo is from Andrew Hickinbottom but since there was no colour just value it made a great study piece. I'll be doing more of these hopefully to improve my lighting & painting skills.

No colour picking, using PS CS5.  Obviously mine's on the right.
