Life Drawing March 23rd

So ends another all too brief (half a…) term

Not sure if I’m going to make it to next to term. I’m too deep in to speaker building and a DJ world at the moment so drawing might have to stay on the back burner for a bit :/

Who knows though. Can’t plan much at the moment in this wibbly wobbly world xx

Barry Whale and the Underwaves

Finished my painting last week. Dubbed “Barry Whale and the Underwaves” (thanks Dad!)

Sploshed in the BG

Bought a new fancy 36 set of half pans. Didn’t use it. #facepalm

Peeled off the masking fluid

It was terrifying. Again.

I think I should have let it dry more. I was a bit over-enthusiastic to see the results

But it just about worked. Knackered the paper here and there. And I had to touch up some of the inking. Nothing major

Boshed on with the colouring paying scant regard to what it would look like. Couldn’t decide whether to colour “Robbie ‘the rock’ Lobster” natural blue or red. Daughter chose red.

Finished it and got it framed the next day at the local framery. Framey. Frame. Frame. McFrame Face.

And somehow completely forgot to take a photo of the finished thing in my haste. Now its hung above my daughter’s bed.

So I just snuck in to take a cheeky snap. She didn’t wake up. Phew. #dadlife

Barry Whale Does A BIG Splash

I wanted to paint the first Barry Whale, but was scared of ruining it, so I knocked out a second 5 min test Illustration last night.

When I proudly showed Daughter #1 my efforts this morning, she loved the test image (because Barry Whale was doing a big splash) and barely noticed the one I took ages doing. Typical.

So I had a bash painting it with Watercolours and white acrylic highlights. Nice to be flexing the artistic muscles again, I’m enjoying it. Got more plans in the pipeline.
