This latest portrait was to celebrate my beautiful cousin Sophia’s 18th Birthday! I’m really pleased with the colours, particularly for the skin-tones, and hope I managed to capture a little bit of the spirit of Sophia here! Anyway, I hope she likes it…Happy 18th!

Portrait No. 2 is now underway. I’m not sure how I feel about it at the moment. I’ve worked from a much looser image this time so I feel that the likeness isn’t there as much, however I did want a less detailed composition overall to reflect the ‘floaty’ quality of the image. I’m pleased with the colours so far and am loving using my beautiful new Windsor and Newton inks! A bit more work to do though, time to scan…

A first sneaky peak at the first of a series of portraits/artwork I’m working on for up and coming artist LitteRedHat! : ) It feels really, really good to be drawing again and using my Windsor and Newton inks. Sometimes it’s good to just to start something and go with the flow. I saw Sara Blake’s talk at the Reasons to Be Creative festival at Brighton Dome last week and was really inspired by her honesty and intuitive way of working, she also seems like a very lovely lady. So…here’s a peak at my portait numero uno!
