Colour Study - SF

This is a colour study for a new painting I'm working on.  It's inspired by a photo that is very symbolic of a great trip I had in the states a few years back.  Here's the original pic taken by my friend Phoenix around sunset at the top of Lombard St, San Francisco.  It was the last photo taken on a cheap disposable camera, I still love this photo, cheers Phoenix!


A new piece I did for Lisa's birthday.  She asked me for something with a little girl and a puzzle and seeing we're heading to NY next year and it's always been her dream to go there this is what I came up with.

Sir Chumpy Boy

Who better as a subject to work on than my faithful co-worker named Chumpy.
Just working on a few new techniques here and working with some new watercolours.
He thinks he's a person so I gave him the Sir tag.

Painting stage using my new Holbein artists watercolour paints.

My work station...

The original pencil sketch which is scanned and worked back into the painted version to keep that traditional look.

Hope you enjoy it...
