It’s my little cat, Lemon, or Citron (mon p’tit chat). A small yellow cat with a big personality. This is a recent computer painting from a study I did in 2011. A homage to George Stubbs’ painting, Whistlejacket, of 1762.
I’ve gone a bit historical, and a bit ‘Pritani’ for this portrait of a horse. It’s an iPad sketch of the ancient horse symbol, with other related symbologies.
I painted this with my fingers on iPad. Strange how tactile this techno-painting can be! I’m happy that the window box plants are higher than my head. Seems important, somehow.
I just found this in my sketchbook from rehearsals at Propeller theatre Co. The actor is Chris Myles and the play they were rehearsing was A Winter’s Tale, 20111 I think. He was playing Camillo. I like the colours.
This is a botched 20 minute Life Drawing sketch done yesterday evening, to which I added some digital paint early this morning. Quite strange and misshapen but I quite like that…
It’s one of those macs, it’s one of those hats, it’s one of those old guys: vintage Cockney style.
I was considering the time I’ve spent at various life drawing clubs and classes. (Life Drawing is a fundamental old school painter’s exercise, where a group draws a nude model in various poses in incremental time spans from 2mins to an hour or two, sometimes using the ‘wrong’ hand).
I did an iPad experiment to see if I now have enough grasp of anatomy to draw a convincing figure without a model to copy – an invented figure. Here it is.
