Thanks for stopping to have a look at the 'news' section of my website. Here you can see my latest work and get updates on what I'm up to.
Here is my latest painting. It hasn't been captured by the photographer yet so the equality of the image isn't great but it does give you a good idea of how the painting looks.
This is the image that I am working on at the moment, it is a completely different colour palette for me and I am loving painting it. I think the final picture will be very dramatic! I think it will take around 4 or five weeks to complete.
So far, so good for 2017. Here are the paintings that I have produced so far this year. There'll be an update on my next piece shortly.
All new work now available in the online shop!
A Breath Before the City Sings:
Well, here it is... my painting of Cardiff. It took nearly ten months to paint! The original image is 54 x 46 inches, and is oil on Linen canvas.
There is a tremendous amount of detail in this painting. When the initial image was mapped out and the colours were blocked in I used the tiniest of brushes to portray each building with as much accuracy as possible. Of course, the is always a little room for manoeuvre in my paintings as buildings are often distorted and scaled-up or down.
Almost all of the people are real too! On that note... a big thank you to all the people who contacted me to be a part of it. Although I couldn't get everyone in there, I did get the vast majority of you... though it may take some time to find yourselves:-) There are family and friends, a class trip, pets, musicians and hundreds of other real people, doing real things.
Within the painting, you can find many of the iconic buildings of the Capital; spanning from St. David's hotel in the Bay, all the way to Castell Coch on the distant horizon.
Look out for Wales' historic win over the All Blacks... you saw it here first. Oh... and there's a Dalek and a tardis too.
