Well after months of hard work i finally managed to finish my set of MotoGP paintings. Painstakingly painted in CS6 whilst working from reference photographs to create these stunning paintings of some of the top riders in MotoGP. A lot of hard work but it paid of in the end. Thanks for all the support and
I finally managed to complete the third and final digital hand painting from the trio for one of my clients and i have to say that i am over the moon with the finished product as was my client. The final painting which can be seen left is of her daughter and it was an honor and a privilege to create the paintings for my client. I sincerely hope you enjoy my work as much as i enjoyed painting it.
I was asked recently from a fellow photographer friend if i would attempt to paint one of his images of a Tornado. Never trying to paint something like this i decided to give it a go. After some serious time and effort i can honestly say i surprised even myself. The painting came out beautifully. It is safe to say that this is another field of subject that i am quite comfortable painting... A big thank you to my friend Ken (Aviation Prints) for the opportunity to paint it..
When it came to painting this picture of the famous actor and Martial Artist Tony Jaa i did not expect the smoke or dragons breath to be so time consuming. The entire painting was based on an original photograph of Tony Jaa but in the end it proved to be a very time consuming piece of work indeed. Approximately 8 hours in total with around halt than for just the smoke. In the end however i managed to pull it of and create an almost identical painting to the original image but obviously with my own take on it. Entitled "DRAGONS BREATH" and painted in CS6 using a graphic tablet.
I have to admit i am surprised by the sheer response to my latest work. The cheeky and fun paintings are becoming rather popular with clients and i am now getting all kinds of requests from people wanting my paintings of them doing some cool and funny things. I suppose it is something new and different from the norm and it does make a nice refreshing change to paint something like this now and again..
Well after such a busy few weeks it was nice to have the day to myself where i could just enjoy myself and play around with some new techniques and equipment in the studio. My recent image was created from 4 photographs. One of the smoke which was created by back lighting lots of cigarette smoke and then 3 individual shots of myself which were all merged together in CS6 to create this fun image..

My latest digital hand painting of a model surrounded by satin sheets. This painting was produced from one of my original photographs from a recent modelling shoot and then hand painted in CS6 using a graphic tablet and pen.
With so many Paintings along side of my normal photography things are beginning to get increasingly difficult to fit everything in but the good thing is that i am really enjoying both the photography and my painting and that is worth every ounce of effort without a doubt..............
