Happy Birthday Mary

October 22, 2009

This is my first attempt at a portrait in watercolour, done as a family gift for a special birthday.  I was aiming for that hand tinted, vintage photograph look.  Fingers crossed she likes it.

Analysis Paralysis

October 3, 2009

It thought it would be a bit of fun to have a piece of my art work made into a t shirt.  I decided to use one of my early monoprints as they are simpler more designed based images.  So without further ado I now reveal the Analysis Paralysis designer t-shirt:

New Tree Studies

October 3, 2009

The art group I attend at the local college is running a study module this term which I’ve opted to participate in.  I’ve decided to take this as an opportunity to develop my recent tree themed studies further.  By the end of the unit I should hopefully have a nice portfolio of tree works in a variety of mediums exploring composition, colour and texture.  Here is my first piece done with the module specifically in mind.
