Ninja Kitti

I guess the advantage of working on multiple paintings at one time is that you get the satisfaction of finishing two in one day!

Its interesting how much of a different process that the canvas painting is to digital. Its a lot slower and you have to wait for stages to dry before you can approach the next, there's no undo function, no editable layers and you can't just pick up objects and reposition them on the canvas. Makes me realise how spoilt we are in this digital age.

On the flip side, you can paint in the sunshine and not be huddled over a computer monitor :)

Latest Painting

Just put the finishing touches on my latest RvB piece. This is my largest canvas so far (762mm x 1016mm). Actually think I preferred working on the larger scale - gives you a bit more freedom.

RvB Development hits full steam

Have some big development plans in the works for RvB, including a fully fleshed out world, story and cast of characters.
I feel like I'm really starting to find the focus for this project that it deserves. Putting a couple of the characters to canvas has really spurred me in to action.
Here's some development sketches I've been scribbling down lately - some of which you will notice have been turned in to paintings. You might even notice a new character - Ninja Kitti.

Stay tuned as more stuff is in the works. Have a couple of paintings in progress and a few other projects on the go for RvB.
Have also updated the branding on my RvB blog and will hopefully giving a little bit more focus to it in the upcoming months.

Great First Week in the Gallery

My Paintings have had a great first week in Artboy Gallery.
Artboy were fantastic enough to feature my art in their front window
this week and have already sold three of the five pieces.
Couldn't have hoped for a more awesome result.
Serious props and thanks go out to Marc at Artboy for the awesome job!

New Painting

Really starting to enjoy doing the painting. It's such a different way of working to my traditional digital work and also has the added benefit of allowing me to get some sun rays.

Will definitely help get rid of that vampiric complexion :)

Here's my latest piece...

New Painting...

Am really getting into the whole painting thing at the moment. Here's my second piece (with a third already in the works). This is a piece based on a digital work I did awhile ago and wanted to really do on canvas.

First painting goes into Artboy Gallery

Very excited. My first painting went in to an art gallery today and is up for sale.

Has certainly spurred me in to action and am already working on another two pieces.

Check out the Artboy Gallery in Greville St Prahran or go to website.
