Unimpressed !

Ape v Apehanger

Ape v Apehanger

Ape v Apehanger …  a snarly unimpressed gorilla gives the Bash to this noisy metal creature.

My father requested this one. He likes to flare his nostrils and is not a fan of Harley Davidson ! But no, he does not resemble a gorilla.

This one was strange to compose ; hard trying to visualise how a gorilla would take on his metal enemy, his posture and his feet etc -  and without much source material.  One assumes this doesn’t happen often in reality.

This ones got an aged feel, kinda like old wallpaper. Its a stencil of my Mum amidst her namesake flowers, but it seems to be heading towards Creepy ! I think she wants to steal your soul.Or ask for help gardening. Or something else…

This ones for my exhibition at Baobab in Newtown next month .  Watercolour and Spraypaint as usual  !

Double Portrait Finish Line

Aug 01

Wykes Boys

Wykes Boys

Just finished a double portrait commission  of two handsome brothers Glen and Sam Wykes.

I think it’s my best painting of  Humans yet ! I always used to avoid drawing figures and faces, but practice and watercolour books from the library have hooked me up.  Always really difficult to capture the personality and exact look of the subject though, even if you measure out the proportions, something eludes you.

Whose next ?
