Digital Paintings…

Two very different themes in the pictures below. The top one is influenced by an artist known as Mr.–Jack, whom I very much admire. I wanted to get a grasp of his technique, and to do this I used a very similar subject to one of his images and tried to recreate certain elements. I have attempted to use this style in acrylic landscape painting too, and will post something on that in the near future.


The next image was more a trial run for a children’s book I’m writing and illustrating. I wanted to get a feel for how I’m going to illustrate the book, and was toying with using digital painting. Still have not decided, will make some attempts in acrylic on board or canvas and experiment with styles more. This picture turned out to be a bit serious, and I added the title ‘Expectant’ after the sketch was finished. The book I’m working will be funny (well that’s the plan). Guess it was late when I did this image, and my energy was a bit low-key, after another day of souless link building, and SEO…sigh.
