This week I have a few updates on the illustrations/paintings I am working on. And, I have started to use a new media, acrylics. I feel that I am up for more challenges, so I thought I should try something new. I have been watching a few tutorials on YouTube, and it is not so far off from watercolour really. Well, I am using the same paper for both medias so it should be fine.
Here is the new material I’ve got, I bought paper in a new cool format (8 x 16 inches) which is perfect for the cars. I got some new brushes as well as paint. The Apple mugs are a memory from being employed by Apple Inc
Here is the drawing of the car, and I have used an ink pen to outline the car.
Here I have started to work with the dark details, I am fascinated by these chrome grills on the American cars, so much details.
I am working on two illustrations simultaneously, the bigger with the boats are still in the same state as last week. I haven’t done anything on it, but have a week off work now so will for sure have time to do some more work on it.
This is from earlier today, I thought this illustration would take a long time to finish. Well it took a little longer than the watercolour would.
And here is the finished illustration. The original is for sale – and if you would like to buy a print of it click here, and it will take you to my shop where I now have a limited offer for all prints up until Christmas Day.
