Big Bugs

Big Bugs 
This is a reworking of an earlier piece -thinking about a book cover.  The challenge was to push it as far as I could. So I think it is one of the more polished pieces I have completed. Having got near the end there are things I would change but for this one it is enough. Next one will be more dynamic.

Dinosaur sketch




I had planned to post another image but have not finished it as much as I would like so some more sketchbook stuff.   The  first image is a copy from a movie poster for Valley of Gwangi by Frank McCarthy. On the reverse of it I did another dinosaur using a different approach.  Didn't mange to hold onto the balanced proportions of the first.

After Charles Leickert Winter Landscape with Skating Figures

After Charles Leickert Winter Landscape with Skating Figures


 Happy New Year to all.  Took advantage of the Christmas holidays to resurrect the oils.  Did a small copy (25 cm x 20 cm )of this painting image from sothebys.  Getting the detail in on such a small scale was a challenge.  It was nice to get back to oils.
