Spent my morning doing this. I'm really not much good at colouring in photoshop yet, but I'm quite pleased with it nonetheless.

I hope you'll be displaying your stuff on a load of wallmounted iPads, Hockney style!

Sketched this on a post it note this morning and have spent all day messing around with the colours. I think this is the version I'm happiest with...

Samurai Pizza Cats!

I don't sell prints, it's something I should probably try and sort out. I'm incredibly unmotivated (read: lazy) though so who knows when that'll be.

It's Spring! Apparently this means that all I can draw are rabbits and butterflies.

A couple of things I've been working on recently, a little outside my comfort zone.

Just finished painting my friend IN THE FACE

I'm trying to play with shallow depth of field paintings but I think I need to take a bit more time getting a good source photo. This one was taken a bit hastily (while banjaxed on a lot of cocktails) but it's all part of a process.

This is quite possibly the most amazing thread on the forum. Excellent work all round. I haven't drawn much for nearly 10 years now (I think JPickford had a comic thread in which I posted some stuff), but have just picked up a new Intuos5, and I'm liking it so far.

I've never trained at degree level, and have never really got to grips with learning to draw bodies, heads, hands in the correct proportions, but it's something I've suddenly got interested in again. Maybe because my current job is starting to bore the tits off me. :)

I trained at degree level and it did nothing but rack up loads of debt and make me depressed. I also didn't learn how to draw anything really, so don't even dare bother thinking that it matters.

I mean, just look at me now! Fat lot of good it did me.


HERE'S WHAT I DUN DID IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS:

I mean, it didn't take me two whole weeks, but in between working my incredible day job and lying comatose on the floor...

What are they made out of? They're lovely.

With what you said about a degree though, I think it depends on what you're trying to achieve. If you say it didn't help a career as a top end illustrator for big corporations, I guess not. I didn't do a degree either, and all I'll say is if you don't spend 3 years working on technique, ideas, anything around "Your Art" it's incredibly hard to develop it with a job getting in the way. I mostly miss from my foundation course the fact that I was "full time" art at that point, most of my week was spent thinking about what it all meant to me, developing technique, ideas, etc.

I mean if you did it, and then get a job, you're on a head start. But for me right now I feel like I spent so much of my twenties not really doing anything, and I'm really starting it up again now. Trying to have some sort of creative process. I'm seeing more exhibitions, I'm sketching more, I'm thinking harder. But it's still too easy to come home after work and just relax with a glass of wine than to start whatever.

My problem is I dont' really know what my style is, where I want to go. Every artist in a gallery seems to have a concept. I don't know what my concept is, other than maybe a kind of Richter influenced photographic technique (as I say, I want to paint shallow depths of field) but I still do a painting and think "hmm painting by numbers here".

I'm not worried, it's just that it takes time and space to untangle the swirl of thoughts in your brain into some kind of cohesive body of work, otherwise you are really just sketching, some sketches might be a nice accomplished oil painting, but they're still kind of just sketches. If that makes sense.

I mean something you should be really proud of, Loz, is that you're one of those posters here (and many other places I'm sure) that could post anonymously and we'd know exactly who made it. You've got a theme, and a style, and I'm quite jealous of that.

That's a brilliant self portrait cowfields! What material is it done in? The colours and tones are fantastic and really like the textures too

Thanks. It's oil on some of that canvas style heavyweight paper. It came out better than expected. I worked from a photo, and took it lit by a red lamp and a green lamp.

Paintings like this are fun in the end but frustrating at first. First few hours its looking all weird and i feel like quitting, but I kept plugging away at it and it all sort of came together and I'm quite pleased with it.
