Mural that I painted for the Queen of Hoxton in East London, originally working from my Utopia illustration shown below, I adapted the piece to fit the narrow format I had to work with. Using spray paint and some stencils, I completed this mural in just under a week. Battling with the cold and wind of London’s uncompromising weather, it was a challenging piece and scaling up my original artwork had its own surprises, but the whole experience has been an amazing opportunity to work in such a different environment.
Spent the last two weekends drawing at Windsor Castle along with classmates from the Prince’s Drawing School. Its been so much fun, I haven’t been there since I was a kid, and being able to go back and look at it with the focus you get when drawing has made me appreciate the castle and its history so much more, plus the staff were so friendly and helpful. I was really tempted to draw all the wonderful objects on display – the ornate detail on everything was incredible, but decided to focus on the spaces instead. This project is still in progress, wrapping it up by the end of this week, but here are several drawings that I made on site, some digital sketches and a gouache painting of a soldier and horse (I took the liberties of removing the plinth they were on).
Fleshy old men and amazons
Trying to keep things simple recently with my life painting done in gouache, exploring shapes more rather than describing forms too literally.
