Hello :-) even by my standards it's been a long time since I last posted anything in here. I've been working really hard of the framing side of things and a couple of months ago I was finally able to leave my job in the computer games industry, so I am now a full time picture framer/artist...and all the merrier for it :-)
I've now managed to clear the backlog of framing jobs, so last week I was FINALLY able to schedule a little painting time. First on the list of things to do is this portrait of Natasha...long overdue...great to get back to some painting and I made pretty good progress, getting in the most of the dark shade and starting on the light, hopefully over the next two weeks I can get this phase all done and then I can start work on the flesh tones...
I'm aiming to have 1 to 2 days a week painting and the rest framing, so with any luck I'll start posting once a week (ish). I've got some commissioned work starting next week, which I won't be able to post, but I'm working on the next phase of the forest paintings, so the plan is to get a little of those done alongside the commissions so you...and I, can see some progress...:-)
You can seeing the currently available forest pieces at the SOTA gallery in Witney and the Burford Art Gallery, Burford. And with any luck I'll add some more locations as the year progresses :-) if your local gallery doesn't have any in stock...ask them why not ;-)
