This was started at the beginning of October and is now completed, 10 hours work across about 3 weeks.(It’s a piece commissioned by a good friend which is not in keeping with my “Icon Art” that I am specializing in, but a favour is a favour and I have been more than happy to work on this piece).

No real reason for choosing to paint Ashey Walters except that I had been watching the second series of ‘Top Boy’ a few weeks ago and i saw this picture of the lead character which I think will look good on my (or someone elses) wall.

I let my Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) piece go this week, for the sum of 50.00GBP.
This is a fair bit cheaper than what I currently charge but I based this fee on the level of detail in the painting.

After approximately 12 hours work, Walter White aka “Heisenberg” comes to life!
Very happy with the results and I’ve actually grown quite attached to old Walter! I think I now know what a surrogate mother must feel like having to give away the baby after she’s carried it for 9 months! 😀

I’ve been commissioned by a friend in work to paint Walter White from the cult “Breaking Bad” TV series.
This is the image I am working from..


I’m really enjoying doing this piece because I’ve finally started watching the “Breaking Bad” series, so it always helps if you are familiar with the subject you are painting.
I intend to have this finished by the end of the month, done about 4 hours on it so far in a week or so.

Update (20/09/13): This is where I’m up to after about 8 hours work – probably another 3 or 4 hours will do it :)
Heisenberg 8hrs work

My latest piece, “Skinner”, was finished on 1st September and is one I am very proud of. The reason I painted him is because I started listening to alot of his music (The Streets) recently, as I could really relate to many of the song lyrics on “A Grand Don’t Come For Free”, they almost paint a picture of what I was going through at the time.
