Welcome to my Studio – I hope you enjoy your visit!
Busy busy SOOO busy painting the final artwork spreads for the Great White Shark book! ?? ???? I've been working on background elements, using non-granulating pigments, so I had to colour swatch them of course! A lot of these are the same colors, but each brand has a slightly different paint recipe, so a collection of beautiful variations here. ?????? I've got so much video footage, but not a lot of time to edit them to share with you just yet (apart from a quick one in my stories ??) After my deadline I promise! ??
Swimming with my sepia seal squad in the studio today ???? "Happy accident" when my t shirt brushed against the wet nose of the bottom seal - instant whiskers! In the past, sepia was a widely used ink, although you had to extract it from the ink sac of the common cuttlefish "Sepia". These days it's made from umber and carbon.
Happy World Oceans Day!???? A little rock pool, a little paint and a LOT of creative license for this video! ??????
Have been working with tiny brushes the last few days. More turtles soon ????????
A teeny brush and 5 minutes condensed to 27 seconds.????
