IMC 2011

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...

Plein Air

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.

Lifedrawing and Sketches

lifedrawing at the Society of Illustraitors in New York.

This one is a drawing I did for Ian McCaig's workshop in sydney... This was an idea for a super intelligent rat from the Pied Piper of Hamlyn... SciFi style.
