    My way of trying to stop artistic block- try other things. Im not proud of any of these the face particular is terrible, the eyes are the wrong size the nose is too the small the anatomy is all off, but it became less about the face and more about the tonal study which i think went ok.

    Hey everyone sorry I've been abit lazy recently, but I have been doing many many things, hectic or what!
    RokasButkys, thanks, and glad you enjoyed the tea!(Assam tea this week, 1886 leaf tea next week). Skull girl was my fav but now I think this one is (entitled "So God created man in his own image")



    and detail



    I was inspirated to do this after seeing Banksy's Bristol Museum vs Banksy (which was very very good, even if the queue was 6 hours long!)

    Anyways another SB double spread



    And these are photographs shot with my Olympus OM-1, Lomo smena 35

    "So God created man in his own image" is amazing! How big is that??? Isn't it in a sketchbook?

    Your last piece comes along great too!

    Hey Eiki, thanks for the compliment. its done in the 8" by 5" moleskine, pretty small for the details but it was fun to do. I scanned it in at a pretty hi res so i could zoom in on the details hopefully the message in it is clear.

    My phone camera isnt vey good and so some of the details and tones have been lost in the last picture, but its the quickest piece I have done like that (about 5 hours)

    dont forget to comment! it really dose help me when I lack motivation.

    EDIT- the camera has made the yellows very unnatural, they are alot more subtle in real life.

    This is soo good man, the cropped face , the upper right placement the expression , the expression of eyes.
    Wish I could have that one on me. You said its not finished yet. Just be careful of overworking it though.

    The latest one is having some harsh color contrast, I have seen that happening even with my camera. Waiting for a better pic , try taking it in the shade outside on a sunny day . And also from far, zoom in to get the pic. The tripod will help.
    Looking forward to a better pic of it.

    Those moleskin pages are great (Chucks and mushrooms!). Is that oil paints you're using?

    Its been a long time I know!!! over a month but I have been keeping myself busy (new projects more paintings etc etc)
    here is a few bits and bobs
    Thanks ever so much bhanu, I think I may have over done it but I'll let others be the judge of that. I really enjoy painting human emotions they are just so varied and everyone's is different.

    Hey Koto glad you liked them, I was going through a very illustrative phase which Im wanting to experiment in again. All my paintings are done in acrylic, I would love to bust out the oils at some point though but the cost is above me at the moment.

    Thanks very much SaintAsh, I do try and mix up what I do as I think it would make me a more well rounded artist, Im going through a big fine art drive now which Im really enjoying. Hoping to become more expressive and experiment more as time goes by.


    I tried to create the look of an off center painting but I think it may take away from the picture.


    the painting on the right isnt finished yet, I love to paint black and white.


    I am doing alot of master studies right now, here are my first Edward Hopper ones.


    I liked the way the face melts into the paint, practice more than anything really.



    Finished this and love it, its exactly what I wanted it to be like.

    ]My piece for falmouth application project, which was titled see through, seeing through and seen through. I explored the idea of seeing through emotional boundaries, which I think worked very well.

    The progression of your sketchbook is absolutely fantastic. Its so nice to see such good handling and care with traditional mediums especially in a day and age when people are abandoning it for digital media. keep up the fantastic work!

    Your finished pieces look awesome! On the faster pieces I think you should take more time looking at what you're drawing, I had/have that problem as well, I'd hurry and not get things right. I'm talking about the first page in general, because your later pieces are great! Keep it up!

    Hey Lolbbq thanks for the post. I never liek to use digital Im not sure why for me traditional paintings are alot more personal and I feel more connected to them, maybe why I shoot film aswell!

    Cranberry, you are right I never really looked at the piece as a whole before but now I take my time as people really shouldnt rush themselves art should be enjoyed not endured!

    finished this piece, not really how i wanted it to turn out like but I am pleased none the less.

    Portrait of girlfriend, step by step of it. Took about 4 hours ish. I cant say Im super happy with it but you win some you lose some. The moleskine paper wasnt coping to well. The paint just wasn't gliding like I wanted it too, Im guessing that's partly because of the paint and book. I really should use a proper canvas for this type of thing.

    so i figure an update is needed.

    First two are my latest Hopper studies (these were really good fun). I pushed the paper as far as it would go so the outcome isnt exactly how I wanted it but meh live and learn.











    And these are designs for a pavilion inspired by the flow of ribbon and organic movement to create space.




    Another inspired by the shapes of leaves.





    More piccys, this time with an Olympus trip (an amazing little camera)




    Hope you had a good time lookign through this lot, please comment abotu anything

    Chris.

    U.D. I am glad you've enjoyed looking through my past year in art I know I have!
    This is my first ever canvas and I am very pleased how it came out.
    Life study of fabric over a chair in my room 6ish hours.
    Theres a bit in the bottom left which I have slightly touched up (improved shadow and things) but not worth another photo.

    3 hours in

    5 hours in

    hey man,
    cool stuff. Lots of improvement since you started painting! Keep at the pencil studies though... we still want to see those ;D Work on confident line and less scratchy stuff. It really helps.

    keep it up!

    I like where that Nike illustration is going. That fabric life study is awesome!

    Your paints on the portrait piece seems to get heavily textured very quickly, I'm getting the same thing, but I prefer it when it's more smoother like some of your initial steps. Are you priming pages beforehand?
