Updated Fagin piece


Quick update on what I've been doing. So although blog updates have been thin on the ground I've been pretty busy with a new show-reel and some painting commissions, portraits and a series of Ocean landscapes for a website (they will be uploaded once completed and OK'd).

I was recently asked whether I was going to do another portrait piece from Oliver! (1968), of Mark Lester (who played the title character), for a show called 'Consider Yourself at Home' as art work for the poster to accompany it. I had previously done a painting of Ron Moody (Fagin) so the idea was to have the two together. These painting will be the basis for the poster with more updated photos of the actors as well as the title. So I've finished up the Oliver piece and done some retouching of the Fagin one, (which I'll upload next!) Here's a link to the site, with a basic poster-set up.

I'll update when the poster's been finalised.

The Monster

Tried a quick watercolour of Bertie, not especially happy with the outcome but it sort of captures him. My excuse is that I haven't practised watercolour in a long time!

'I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request'

So in-between a couple of commissions and finishing my reel I've managed to get another wee bit of portrait practise  in, also any excuse to watch Pirates of the Caribbean really!!!

King Slayer

Found this half finished on a hard drive and decided with the upcoming season 3 of Game of Thrones (very excited for that!) to polish it off. Enjoy.

Was re-watching Pitch Black earlier and decided to do a quick painting, around 4 hours in total. Enjoy!!

So I've been very bad and not done much art recently but here's a piece I'm working on, the fabulous Hugh Laurie as House!  Not quite finished with it, the skin is a bit too smooth and I would like to try to give it a more pitted lived in feel, and I want to try the hair again but I'm going to leave it like this for now and come back to it in a while. Hope you enjoy!
