Personal Work

This is the section where I'm sharing some of my side projects. I use my personal work as a place to explore techniques, textures and ideas.

 

I'll add a description with each image.

Summer Nights

Evening stroll in a spring field. 

I live in beautiful Devon and some of the wildflower meadows are so beautiful this time of year.

I'm a big fan of the TV series Mad Men.

Having recently re-watched it, I wanted to try some digitally created portraits. I stuck to pencil brushes to try and maintain a more traditional medium which is always my aim with digital work.

This emerged from a texture experiment using procreate.

I enjoyed both versions of this 1920s inspired image

Each October there is an Instagram drawing challenge called "Folk Tales week". In 2019 I joined in using the daily prompts. 

This image had the prompt "Home". I used the lyrics to the folk song "The Fox" as inspiration.
