Re-discovered this photo that I took in Whitby Bay. Went there in the summer of 2010, although the weather wasn't very summery! But then again, this is England after all.
Photoshop CS4 The left hand half was the original image. Duplicated and mirrored.
:) I love Whitby bay, definately will return some day.

Later Illustrator

Ps to the tumblr users out there. I have two on the go, so check um out.

Later Illustrator!

So It's been a while...

It's been a long while. It's December which means Christmas is vastly approaching and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Daunted maybe? SO much to do!! Here's some of what I have been doing, enjoy!

I've been Oil Painting a lot of clouds. My current project is an experimental book project so the end product must be a 'book' of sorts, that term seems to be used loosely though... This for me is all prep work for one of two ideas.

For the same project. Looking at typography and cutouts.
 An Illustration in the early stages, still can't decide if I should paint her because as she is I'm fairly happy... so
Here is a closeup painting in oil on wood, also in the early stages...
I'm so new to oil paint so there are a lot of learning curves to take at the moment but so far I'm really enjoying it and the tinniest amount of linseed oil goes a VERY long way!
I'm pretty happy with her left hand, I generally struggle with hands as do a lot of us out there.
More to come!
Have a lovely day,
Later Illustrator!
