Here is the progress on my New painting of Eric Sykes, one of my favourite actors. I have quite a bit of work left to do.
I have been putting the finishing touches to my Che Guevara painting: What lies beneath. I initially painted Che, but wanted to camouflage him so he almost disappeared into the background. I have been reading the Cuban and Bolivian diaries which are fascinating reading. All I have to do is put a few coats of varnish on to finish.
Start of my new painting of Eric Sykes. I will be decoupaging flowers and painting motifs with oil glazes.
This is the beginning of my new painting of Eric Sykes, which will have decoupaged flowers and motifs painted with oil glazes. I will incorporate some of the lyrics from The Byrds song Turn Turn Turn (There is a season)
I have finished My oil painting commission. If you wish to commission a work of art please email me at email@example.com
Starting to glaze
Building up the layers of oil
Laying out the colour pattern
Beginning to paint
Drawing out the pattern
I have been commissioned by a church to create a painting based on a stained glass window. I have used a Kaleidoscope pattern that Incorporate into many pieces of my artwork. I have built up the layers of oil and am in the process of painting the glazes on top and tidying up the colours.
Mixed media on canvas. Price: £150.00
I have based this new artwork on the film The silence of the lambs. I didn’t want to use too obvious motifs and have used some of my other artwork in this painting: e.g Anne Boleyn and some anatomical drawings. I have used Oils for the background with gold leaf and decoupage to add depth.
I have been working on a new painting which is based on stained glass windows. I wanted the artwork to have the translucency of a stained glass window. I began by looking a nebulas, black holes and space photographs so I could get an ethereal look to the painting. I have kept a limited palette of colours as I will be overlapping the oil paint so the colours on top will change the under painting.
