Happy New Years!

And the count down is on! I can not believe 2012 has almost come to an end! This year has been one of the best years artistically for myself! Being chosen by Chris Oatley for his first Painting Drama course has completely changed the way I approach my art now and can not wait to learn more from the great man himself! And of course taking the gamble and flying over to CTN Animation expo in Burbank LA was the most rewarding weekend, (I promise to post about the weekend soon!) Not only did I get to meet great artists and be inspired by their work, but received some fantastic feedback and direction that I am excited on where my art will take me in 2013! Hope you have an amazing New Year and happy holidays! I know I can not wait for the time off at the beach!

CTN Feedback leads to more sketches!

CTN was amazing! I will be updating with more stories and development of some pieces. So much feedback that just clicked, which makes me really excited to create and update my art. One on the list is Sleeping Beauty's Kingdom. Here are some rough sketches where I am exploring the details of how this community works!

Life Drawing

 I am currently studying at the Oatley Academy, and the difference to my drawing approach is amazing, and a strong impact on my life drawing.

Tree studies

This is the year I learn the basics again, by staying off the computer for as long as I can and create art from observation. It was fantastic to mix and build colours again.

Train Life Studies

Using the paint app Brushes, I have put my train commute to good use, and created a large quantity of Life Studies. Passengers who were fixated on their smart phone or asleep allowed longer painting time, others are quick minute colour studies.

Paris VS New York City

After sketching so many of the great cities I have been to, New York and Paris as my favourites. Both are uniquely beautiful, one with power & one with romance. Their structure & characteristics contrast each other and is quite evident in the simple sketch. Which city do you prefer?

The first time I arrived in New York City, was after a month of cruising around the Greek Islands. The contrast between the two environments was so strong, I was so excited to be in a loud vibrant city, and New York lived up to all the hype, and the city took my heart. I really enjoyed revisiting these memories and playing with the sky-scrappers and the shadows all these buildings create. Thanks for checking my sketches out!
