Sketching performances in front of a live audience is such a great thing to do, I can enjoy the music, engage with it by drawing simultaneously, and by the time the show is over the audience will have seen a blank sheet of A3 paper transformed into the scene they have just witnessed - using only pencils. Magic! My portraiture work is hand-painted in acrylic on linen board, everything passes through my own lense to become colourful interpretations of spontaneous photos with a strong sense of composition and volume that bring the subject to life. There are no last minute changes to this process so I will keep you updated throughout. Illustrations require a good dialogue between artist and client - there will be 2 rough drafts and the opportunity to modify the final piece before the final artwork is sent in its digital form because I really want to get it right for you.
