Jawas on Tatooine – Star Wars – Oil Painting

Utinni!

I have been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember, the OT was finished up almost a decade before I was born and I was born into a Star Wars household.

My favourite creatures from the Star Wars universe are without a doubt, Jawas. Ironically, I didn’t realise this until the release of the Mandalorian and seeing the Jawas again but in a different context, the nostalgia value hit high.

This in turn inspired me to want to turn out some Jawa themed artworks, this post here shows the first which is a bit of a character study style piece; made with the intention to inform a small series of future Jawa paintings that will have a different look to them to this one.

Legend of Zelda Illustrations Roundup

Hey Listen!

I decided that I needed to put out a short blog post with a roundup of my illustrations from the recent Legend of Zelda miniseries that I put out. I have a couple of charcoal drawings in am ore fine art style and the rest are ink and watercolour pieces.

The Legend of Zelda is a subject of inspiration that I will continually revisit over time as I love the story, the franchise and the massive nostalgia points I get each and every time. That’s without mention of the absolutely incredible Zelda community which alone is reason enough to create Zelda artworks!

I wouldn’t have worked on a series of as many piece as I did this time around though if it wasn’t for the nudge and inspiration from Joel Siegel over at Linktober – The fact that he put on the Zelda Creator Con and gave me a place within it gave me a massive boost as well as in incentive to get truly stuck in, even putting my Geisha series on hold for a short time.

Legend of Zelda – Miniseries I – Watercolour Illustrations

Hey Listen!

Every now and then I am suddenly and unexpectedly hit with surges of nostalgia, and having art and illustration as my choice medium of outlet, this usually always results in artwork. Sometimes just a doodle of scribble, sometimes a painting; and occasionally a series.

This is the case with this miniseries, I also will be adding a few more pieces to this set as well using different media; as I have been accepted into the upcoming Zelda Creator Con by Linktober!

Anyway, before I keep rambling on like the Great Deku Tree, let’s see some art…

Hanako – Geisha Portrait – Oil on Canvas

A Different Kind of Pose…

For this portrait I took a different approach, chose a different viewpoint and pooled everything that I’ve learned from the Geisha pieces so far together into one piece.

As with all of my paintings, this piece started out as a preliminary drawing in charcoal, if you wish to see that – Click Here.

Anyway, here’s the portrait –

Geisha Girl Portraits – Oil Paintings – Katsuru & Mameka

The street of Gion have quietened down, but the tea houses are thriving…

Continuing the Geisha theme that I’ve been working on over the past couple of months I now have a couple of oil painting portraits to share.

These portraits were great fun to work on and I learned such a lot in the process. I worked on these with my usual method of approach; starting with a preliminary charcoal drawing, then transferring an outline to canvas before working on the underpainting.

Candle Holder – Alla Prima – Still Life – Oil Painting

Finding the time to experiment…

So as a result of the current lockdown measures here in the UK I have been afforded a rare luxury within my artwork; time. Time to experiment and play about with ideas and techniques; time to learn from life studies and master studies; time to reflect on the work I’ve been doing with the pencils and brushes.

One area that I have been really getting stuck into is alla prima painting. I’ve done some pieces as still life artworks, setting up the subjects and lighting them in the way that I desire; there is no better way to learn a subject than by studying it in real life, in person. I’ve also done some alla prima paintings using reference and photography too, a total opposite to my normal slow and steady approach of building a painting up in layers, slowly and steadily.

“Keep Doing This In Remembrance Of Me.” – Luke 22:19,20 – Oil on Canvas

During the past few weeks of the UK lockdown, amongst delving into a new series of artworks I have spent a decent amount of time doing alla prima painting sessions and I’ve set up a few still life pieces to paint. It’s been nice to have the freedom of time to paint for the sake of painting and to learn, observe and explore different techniques and methods to my usual work.

The Watercolour Sketch Series – Part I

Memory Lane has been a popular destination of late…

Over the past few weeks I have been working up a series of watercolour sketches, it wasn’t really intentional, just a quick little bit of doodling some mornings before work and it soon became a part of an occasional routine.

Serving as the inspiration behind these sketches, i have been using nostalgia as a vehicle to take me down Memory Lane and revisiting iconic characters/scenes/stories from my childhood.

I have every intention of continuing this series and I have a ton of inspiration to draw from and endless artworks to create for this series. Star Wars for instance will be revisited several times, as will many of the other ones!

Anyway, let’s get into the artworks –
