A New And Exciting Workshop/Tutorial May 2107

 

I will be announcing a fantastic workshop/tutorial in the next few days.

This amazing event will take place in mid May and will feature myself and another multi medal winner.

The event will be held at a venue in Warrington……. watch this space

 

Do I REALLY have a style?

People often say to me “oh I knew that was your picture….. I recognised the style”

This statement usually ends up with me looking confused and if not a little bemused.  Do I really have a style and if so is it so obvious?

For a start I do quite a bit of straight digital painting (no photography in these images)

             

 

Sometimes the digital painting is  a little abstract !

    

Okay, I know that I am associated with green images …… but I do do other colours and genres even fine art nudes in mono.

      

 

I’ve even been known to do the odd nature picture !

   

I enjoy producing straight portraits – of beautiful ladies and gentlemen

      

 

 

   

        

 

      

And as I love to travel – I find time to take pictures from around the world

     

I suppose my main passion is producing creative edits – and these can take many forms from “almost straight” to extremely painterly 🙂

     

 

Would these painterly pictures do well in BPE/FIAP competitions…… I very much doubt it.

   

 

       

 

Sometimes I have been know to be surreal…

     

 

       

 

So…..looking through some of the images I have produced over the last few months I really don’t see a style – but as I am always told that I have one and its VERY recognisable I must be missing something !

Thanks To All The People I have Worked With In 2016 (Part 1)

It’s getting near the end of the year so I thought I would put some pictures together to record what I have been producing in 2016.

These pictures are a small collection of straight images, creative doodlings and travel pictures.

I have used Photoshop and Corel Painter to produce the images below:-

PS I did a long more “stuff” in the second half of the year !!

Photographic Review Of 2016 January

As it’s coming towards the end of the year I thought I would look back at the lovely models I have had the pleasure of working with this year.

I love photographing models in costume and usually make (or adapt) the dresses/corsets myself – I also make the headdresses too.

I decided that I wanted to do a set of pictures based on A Queen theme (I’ve already “done” The Ice Queen) and made the costumes to compliment that theme.

It took me many weeks to finish the costumes and the first person to grace these outfits was the very lovely Stephanie Dubois

In January I also revisited Corel Painter and began producing pictures that had a very painterly feel.
