It has been a long time! Two kids and hard work on Gatsby and lego movie meant I had little time for posting. Let's hope I getore frequent but since I'm writing this on a mobile on foot to work I should get the chance to post more often. I got lots more... Somewhere.
I took part in this years Illustration Masterclass and had a ball... what an incredible meeting of creative heads! It was so much fun and I really got into painting in oils... I have only really ever done plein air before this, so it was a very interesting experience. Here are all the steps the painting went through...
This one was done from the beach a few minutes walk from my house in Brighton Le Sands. Oil on canvas.
And this one was done in the pouring rain from up the coast on the same shoreline... the same huge refinery is kind of visible, but it was raining so hard that my pallette box was actually half a centimetre underwater by the end... the painting was streaming with water all the way through.
