Here a portrait commission I finished recently, I took a few process shots as I was going along. The first two show the inks and the first colours that I started to put down onto the painting, just to get a quick sense of the light and shadows.

Next is where the more detailed colors come in, whilst continuing to work on the shadows and highlights. At this point I nearly always end up painting solely with just a teeny tiny brush, in order to add all the details and hairs.

Not a drastic amount was done after this, just more details and a lot of tweaking to get everything looking right!

Long time no blog

Ok so its been a while since I last did a post... truth is it feels like a have a lot of different projects on at the moment which have been keeping me busy! Anyway I thought it might be best to do a quick update and share some of the things I've been working on.

First off, here are a couple of private commissions I did a while back:

These are both done with watercolour and Ink, on A4 sized paper. I was quite pleased with how these two turned out, I think with Bernt in particular the photo had so much character which has translated really well into the painting.

I have also been working on my Etsy shop, I'm currently in the process of rebranding it which hopefully will be unveiled soon. In the meantime, I have loads of new designs of jewellery which you can take a peek at.

Finally is Sir Charles Vintage! Alexander and I decided to set up an online vintage store as a fun side project, you know, just because we both love vintage clothes and stuff!
