This is an Acrylic painting aprox 12" x 16" on a canvas board which I painted over Christmas.It is quite dark.I wanted to preserve the skin colour.The slight Impasto background is designed to warm the over all feel of the painting
This is a new Acrylic and is quite big ( for my paintings ) 16" x 12". I havent really got the colour right on this photo, the painting is a lot richer and the whites are white. This is inspired by a photo I took near Boston which I solarized to separate the colours. So I have deliberately painted it loosely and used only two colours Cobalt blue and Ultra marine and ..... white and black. To be honest I dont know whether it,s finished or not ?.
Here are some new painting. I,ve tried to draw some Manga, if you are interested in Manga there,s lots on the web and thousands of comics. Find them in Waterstones or Barnes and Noble if they are still about in the US under Graphic novels. They arent easy very deceptive to draw, but the key to getting it right is the EYES.If you are really interested in drawing Manga check out Mark Crilley on the net.I think that this could be a life long struggle to get it right. These are all waterclours and have been processed using Halftone on the iPad.
Here are couple of new watercolours.I have been looking at paintings by Jean Haines so these are sort of influenced by her. Have a look at her site at www.jeanhaines.com what a great watercolour artist.
