Just to see if I can do it!
Here's some progress shots on the big horse painting I've been working on in the studio - 1.25m x 1.65m, oils on linen

First the red oxide tint to the linen, all ready to go on the easel :


After drawing it up I started work on the muscle shapes :


More work on the muscles and adding some different colour in the coat :


A bit of work on the sheen :


More glazes and work on the background / sky :


Almost there! hopefully one or two more glazes then some highlights and it'll be done

Shots of three new small nightscapes I've started, for an upcoming show in September (exact dates to be decided)


All 40x30cm, oils on linen


Above and below started in one night


There's still atleast one more pass on all three, maybe a bit more tweaking here and there.
More to come...

Here's three little paintings I did last night in a row of the good old classic lego spacemen!
All three are oils on triple-primed chunk of Tasmanian oak, around 25cm tall each, a nice size to work all quick and painterly.
They're all up for sale on ebay, framed and ready to go...

Sold, thanks Jon!

Beer number 14 in my 99 paintings of bottles of beer series - another West Australian craft beer from down in the South West - "Vienna Lager" from Eagle Bay Brewing Co

This ones a Bavarian style lager, brewed with rainwater and solar power, good on em!


The camera really blew out the oranges for some reason and I can't seem to correct it properly.
Here it is ready to go, paints layed out :


And the paints used. That Maimeri Medditeraneo Trinacria Orange was perfect for the label on the bottle, hard to find another PO62 so I've got a better version of this pigment, this one is a bit grainy but it did the job.


And here's the painting video :




Cheers!
