Skyway - Jersey City'Skyway' - This morning's speed painting based on my recent mural painting trip to Jersey City. This is the Pulaski Skyway bridge, amazing old industrial structures in Jersey City, I love this historical architecture. Everyday painting my mural, I could look across and see the bridge, and after a long days painting, as the sunset, this inspired me to snap some shots of the bridge, this painting is based on those pics!
vietnam - Hoi AnHere's my new painting based on my travels in Vietnam. I wanted to focus this painting on the day time and the stark contrast with the blasting white sun light, and the extremely rich colours of the flowers and the deep dark shadows underneath. The candid characters going about their daily lives, i am fascinated by capturing these unposed, natural moments in time. Freehand, no effects, tracing, or image manipulation, based on my own photography,
'Night Rider''Night Rider - Vietnam' - Here's my latest painting based on my travels in Vietnam a few years back. Such a beautiful country with amazing diverse places and such incredibly friendly and hospitable people. Such an inspiring trip.
Milan tracksMilan Tracks - Here's this morning post Milan speed painting! Waiting on the platform on the metro in Milan, I was fascinated by the tunnels of their underground, I managed to get some great reference pics, and this [painting is based on one such photograph. I did have a loud tannoy announcement whilst I was happily snapping away, and think they were telling me to stop photographing...no idea why??? Anyway, loved painting this, really captures that dark, underground labyrinth,
'Neon Nights''Neon Nights' - Here's my latest all freehand, all by eye, digital painting based on my recent trips to Tokyo. I love the candid nature of this, when I travel over the world I like to snap away and get lots of raw, candid shots of people going about daily lives, capturing genuine moments, and these I love to paint. The young couple laughing together and the two women behind looking serious at a text message on a mobile phone...
'The Ending''The Ending' - Here's my latest digital painting, all freehand, all by eye and based on my own photography whilst in Hong Kong in February. I have so many of these fascinating alley way shots t paint, massively inspired by the trip...hiding under a network of pipes, tubes, and air conditioning units, a man, gazing down at his phone, eyes transfixed, staring, unable to takes his eyes from the screen....messages, bad news, words he didn't want to read.... the ending....
