Some storyboard art. Done quickly, but I still like it.
As promised last week here’s a painting with proper paint. It’s about A5, acrylic on Bristol Board. A lot looser than the way I would normally attack a portrait, but quite happy with the finished look.

Took the day off work last Friday and did a quick acrylic study of some trees. Doing lots more painting in my spare time now and the more I get back into the swing of it the more I want to do and make it a big part of what I do as an artist.
Trying to free myself of the slow crushing detail that dogs a lot of my painted work and become more open and expressive. Bold and brash. Kept the painting small, 8”x6” and also used just the one brush and a much bigger brush than I’d normally use to help me try and stay away from crushing detail.
