Here are some selected sketches from my current sketch book. I drew the apple tree and the dead tree in my garden in the sun where I ended up with a lovely sun burn. I got tired of scanning and took pictures of some of the pages. Stop judging me. I had to hold the scanner lid down.
I thought I better start using my Twitter account, as I never do. So I’ve updated it and made it look pretty. I used my recent self portrait and merged it with several of my other pieces to create a background. This is the background.
Also, after returning to Twitter I noticed a bunch of spam tweets from my account. This is all sorted now, sorry to any one who this annoyed or was a problem! Sneaky hackers.
Another piece using the same process as before here. I really liked the outcome of the last one so I decided to do one fully from reference, so I used a photo of myself.
The paint brushes, scratches and lines in the painting make me want to try this with real paints and canvases, so maybe soon I’ll venture into that. But until then I’m hoping to experiment more with painting these in Photoshop.
