This year I picked up a brush (and a skewer, needle and straw) and returned to working on canvas. This is a departure from spending hours compositing and colouring illustrations digitally. It is a delight to working quickly and with energetic strokes. To date, I have done three paintings (one is a birthday present for a friend so it’s top secret). I work in four colours: black, white, yellow and red and spend no more than four hours on each painting. The aim is to paint energetically at speed for a fast responsive turnaround to requests.
Wow it’s good to be creatively free!
