Oil paints

I'm the worst at keeping an up to date blog.

I'm currently spending a lot of time studying painting in oils. I feel I have practically just begun with colour and I'm pushing myself to create the best work I possibly can in the next couple of months for the A.M.E. Bale travelling scholarship prize. Lots to learn and execute in a short time. I'm doing a couple very small colour studies each day until I feel slightly more comfortable and then will dig into my final paintings.

There are a few paintings that I did in the first half of this year for a group show, and I've been meaning to put them up here for a few weeks now. About time I did so! These are my foray into making my own illustrations in the medium of oils. I'm looking forward to doing many more.
