Recent works in progress & sketches from the studio. All of these are part of my experiments in Memory Painting, where I use no reference material to paint from apart from my memory of past experiences.
Well, for anyone that has visited this page before, I've changed the look of this blog a bit and spent some
time trying to get it looking a little nicer- I think the black was bringing me down a little! Hopefully it looks a little cleaner, more inviting and not so dingy now.
In addition to the updated look of the blog I've got a new painting- a quick little pin-up and some even quicker sketches for my new friends at the Pole Dance Academy in Bondi Junction. Check them out at www.poledanceacademy.com.au.
I'll be working with the girls at Pole Dance Academy doing quick live portraits of girls for their hen's nights and parties- I was at the studio today and it was great!
The painting was done in about 2.5 hrs and the sketches are 5 minutes each, using photo reference. Dunno why the blog wants to cascade the images but I can't fix it!
I cranked this out in around 3 hrs for the 'Oscar Wilde Party' at BB's last night. Needs more work but people dug it. I'll polish it up in the studio and post a finished image soon, along with some other finished paintings. The quality of this photo is pretty bad too, I'll try to get a better photo and post that. If you were out at BB's and saw me painting, drop me a comment and say hi!
I'm an artist from Sydney, Australia. I draw and paint in various media and graduated from the National Art School in 2007. I'm currently working on commissions and personal work some of which will gradually appear here!
