Cheeky detail adjusted for colour correctness.
i'm taking bets on how long they last...
I've done a little more on my comic idea. Working out panel position and story at this stage so not a finished comic. All my workings as it were
your pencil drawings - especially the hand and cat face, I think you should focus working on tones/shading because theres only 2-3 tones and it looks a bit blocky, do you know what I mean? I dunno if thats the intent or not, draw an apple with light on one side and focus on the shadows, where they change and shit, what you wanna be doing is practising making it look more 3d
i dunno if you want constructive criticism or not but i did it anyway, do you paint? your expressive mark making i think would suit it
I don't really do as much of anything as I could! And painting tends to be to costlier of the mediums to use for me.
Those 2 are pretty much sketches rather than any attempt to finish them. Im a bit out of touch with drawing so tending to try to get back into seeing things and like you say mark making rather than get bogged down coming back to them and making lots of reworkings.
As for wanting, or not, any criticism.. I've been to art college so had a lot worse a classic being 'it looks like you got dog's shit on your shoe and smeared it all over your painting'... For over using a colour ha ha

Mumbles274 you inspired me to draw a stylised fish, I want to paint it in watercolours in the same style as my Hummingbird painting
Love it!! Cant wait to see it done
Thanks, I seem to be doing art work sporadically at the moment due to other life stuff (sigh) but hopefully I'll get back into a regular practice soon.. I just love it so much..
Yeah, I've had a week or so of not doing much.. Still the weekend approaches!
this is a layering sample am doing for college, not finished yet, my elephants are so near to being finished, last night I did an ear thats been killing me for about 5 weeks
I finished my fish illustration
Painting made for Life Book 2017, its called 'Landscapes of the Mind'
A part of a larger piece I'm working on for my final piece at college - I was trying to make the blues in the fabric come forward more - I think I have achieved that objective and makes more colours show in it now that the browns/coral tones are receding a bit
i like the texture and the way the stitches creep out. like mould or moss

Unexpected day off - I am waiting for a floor to dry in a new bar, and I really fancied a bit of an escape from everything, so...
Big canvas is getting covered in oils.
I am reworking Steffi and the Prickly Pear...
This is one of my favourite paintings. It doesn't make sense, breaks many rules, but it works for me. I may end up recreating it quite literally, but firstly, I am going to try new colour theories. Determined to cover the entire canvas (1.6 Meter x 1 Meter) by the end of the day - end of day photo will come.
I have already moved pitch. Too many disturbances and stress. Firstly Mateus found me. He is very disabled, so I had to buy him his beers, open his beers, go get stuff to make his bocadillo for him, make him a joint... Before I had even started Policia Local arrived. After a discussion which ended with them telling me they would serve a denuncia if they saw me again before walking away. I told them their denuncia would probably not stick in court and their boss, and the courts may well get pissed off with them wasting everybody's time. Then a couple of other street folk turned up. I attract them like a magnet. The bars are quite happy for me to work in front of their terraces, but when people with all sorts of issues start to congregate and create a disturbance it obviously isn't good for me.
I have now set-up outside my regular off-season pizza joint. It is going to rain later, or tomorrow anyway, so I need dry shelter.
Initial paint covering comes later
Steffi is going to be Demeter from Greek Mythology. To my mind 'Goddess of Bread'.
Cracking on with it now. I have made quite a display - I am always looking for new clients!
The colours are looking fucking gorgeous on the right. Not so well balanced to the left. Going to put the trees in before I change anything in the sky even though the sky is going to change loads.
Struggling to capture the colours on my web cam thing. Done for the day now. All painted out. Apparently I am working indoors tomorrow, so this is on hold for now.
Working with a pallet of lemon yellow, burnt umber, violet, ultramarine, sap green and white.
It is raining. The good thing about rainy nights is they keep the addicted indoors!
Gave Mateus a blanket. My mate gave him more beers. I tried to carry him to a dry, safe place. In the end me and my mate dragged him there. He then asked if we had a pillow. I gave him an imitation Burberry jacket as a pillow. I have been wondering what to do with it since last November.

a painting that is happening slowly, its sort of unfolding..
