Been pretty busy of late working (other work) so not getting in to the studio much of late however, I have two whole days ahead of me to do just that. Open day went great with lots of folk coming to see us. Really appreciated all the kind comments and even sold some prints and Karen sold a painting too. We're planning on making it a regular thing, maybe every 3 or 4 months, in conjunction with the other businesses at 143 West Regent so look out for more developments. With the summer approaching (?!) there's even been talk of BBQs out the back so make sure you come along for some tasty grub.
Have managed to get some new painting done though. I'm trying a bit of a different style by turning some of my pencil illustrations in to paintings. Usually my illustrations are monochrome, with occasional digital colouring or watercolour but I thought I would give it a go in oils. My previous style in observational oil portraits is much more expressive and loose than many of my fantasy illustrations so I knew it was going to be a bit of challenge. However, I'm pleased to say things are going well and I've produced a couple of works I really like and most importantly enjoyed doing. See more as they get finished in the new "Fantasy" section in the "Painting" menu.
