The yearly shower


Always wanted to draw a troll. So here is my one having his yearly shower with his jelly cap and not looking too happy as even just one shower a year is too much.

Day Dreaming


What started as a doodle and ended like this. I am not sure what is wrong with my blogger, as when I uploaded this image the colour seemed slightly darker and more saturated in some areas. So the original is slightly different to this one...oh well.

Quick detective doodle

The fish shop


I found this sketch that I drew about a year the other day and only now had the inspiration to paint it. I am glad I keep all my old drawings :) Anyway's here is The fish shop - business is slow.

Google maps virtual plein air painting - Old N1 Rd, South Africa


Here is my second attempt at some virtual plein air painting. I kept it to an hour and a half as before. This is a view from the old N1 road in South Africa near Paarl. And as promised as before here it the google maps link - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@-33.705176,19.244624,3a,37.5y,294.28h,100.01t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1svESojmDqJkPChQweGULgDw!2e0

Virtual Plein air painting based from Google Maps


I noticed some people doing virtual "plein air paintings" the other day and so today I thought I'd give it a go. Here is a plein air painting of a random house on Murchinson Rd in New Zealand. I stupidly did not think to save the link to the exact location on Google maps but anyone is welcome to help me find it again :) I'll remember for next time. My aim was to paint it within 2 hours and I managed to do this one in an 1hr and a half. It was good fun. definitely will do more :)

Has technology stolen our imaginations?


Something that just started out as a doodle and ended like this. Not really sure where I was going with it, it was just a good way to pass the time.

Portrait study - Parina


Thought I would do a portrait painting of one of my friends using reference from various photos. Here is Parina Mehta :) I think I will do a few more portraits of some of  my friends over the next few days. It is a good challenge to try and get a likeness to the person you are wanting to depict.

Blackout


Awhile ago the village where I live had a power cut in the evening. I was home alone watching tv and the sudden darkness left me blind for a few seconds and I could not find a torch anything to create some light. Anyways to cut the story short I tend to have a very active imagination and so I decided to do a painting about my 15 minutes of panic before my mother came home :)
(P.S: I am terrified of zombies)
