The photo on the left of Leonardo Di Caprio in “The Great Gatsby” is what I shall be working from, as an experiment on capturing expression, of which his is fantastic in this picture. The photo on the right is of Heath Ledger as ‘The Joker’ from Batman, and I shall be painting this as… Read more »

Merry Christmas :)

Amongst all of the nice gifts I received from loved ones today, I got these two great presents… I’m sure they will both be inspiring and educational and it should be interesting to see if, and how, my style evolves after reading and studying the techniques in the one book and appreciating the masterpieces in… Read more »

“Skinner”

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

My latest piece, “Skinner”, was finished on 1st September and is one I am very proud of.
