Something from last week, inspired by the film “Let the Right One In”. Acrylic, printed material and graphite on wood panel.


sketching stuff

It’s been a quite couple of weeks, I did some work on a new painting thats kinda under wraps for now, but I’ve been trying to figure out a way forward. Got all sorts of ideas for new things to try, not quite sure how to get started but I guess I’ll just jump straight in and figure it out later!

So I’ve been sketching away and I think I might make something of this. Not sure what, we shall see!

finished (i think)

I’m sure there’ll be something to tweak when I look at it next, but overall pretty damn pleased with how it turned out.

work in progress

The troublesome wood panel is getting a second chance.

I’m using a different image and taking a different approach this time, here’s how it’s looking right now. Just lots of work with a graphite stick. Next stage I’ll varnish it, then start to work over with some colour and highlights. Still carrying the remains of the last attempt. Kinda adds to it.

I’ve really got no idea what I’m doing, time will tell!

got wood

I bought a couple of wood panels last week, wanted to try painting on something different. This is the first attempt. As you’d imagine, felt totally different to painting on paper, but was pretty fun. Led to a much rougher approach, which was what I was hoping for really, I like how the wood and texture show through the paint.

I’ll get started on the next one this weekend…
