4 hours. She is a friend, much different experience painting someone you know.

Painting of Penny

We've restarted our little figure painting group at Weta, here's what I did on Saturday, 4 hours. It looks a bit different because I was painting over an existing, dried impasto painting that created a rough surface. Not as easy to add chiseled strokes when you've got a rough surface there already. Good to mix up technique.

Also a photo of the sweet space we've been leant to use. You can see a great view of Wellington and the airport, and BOTH sides of the peninsula. Small town!

Painting of Ruby

Here's a 2 hour painting of my friend Ruby from a few weeks ago. So good to get back into oils! More to come.

Doing a bit of reading about nanotechnology got me thinking what fashion ads might look like in the future... Body enhancements and beauty ideals..

New Website

I'm happy to break the silence here by announcing my new website,  . I'll keep this blog to post more informal work and in-progress stuff, my new website mainly as a portfolio website. There's lots of new images there already. Hope you enjoy!

Hapi Daze

Here's some work I did for Garage Project, a brewery here in Wellington. The beer is light, fruity and summery, I had a taste of it when it was still being brewed... for "inspiration"! And hopefully transport you to a "hapi" place...
