Warton Arms, Woodmansey

Little sketch of the Warton Arms in Woodmansey. Watercolour has this ability to make me feel like a total amateur but I enjoy it so much! Gotta keep at it. Maybe I can embarrass myself into improving this tricky medium.

Sketchdump Sunday 27/8/17

Watercolour value sketch from Bouguereau and some line work. I sketched and inked the pepper in Photoshop from life, it was just on the desk in front of me. The hands are a study to help inform another piece. Have been playing with watercolours a lot more though ha!.. just with quite a high fail rate! Sometimes best to just swirl it around and let it do it's own thing.

Colin Portrait

Can finally show this one.. This pencil portrait is a memorial piece in remembrance of good ol' Colin Eagle. Huge thanks to the Eagle's for the opportunity  x

and here's something rather lovely that Colin's sister wrote to me - 'Thank you so much Steve for the most amazing portrait. You have captured my late brother's expression exactly and brought him back to life for my family. Such a brilliant likeness. I wholeheartedly recommend Steve's work to anyone out there looking for something special. You have a unique talent Steve. Thank you again."

Sketchdump Sunday 6/8/17

Some anatomy and unfinished thing. 1) sketchbook 2) digital and 3) watercolour. That flat. Need to work on hands and noses! Don't get bored of my studies, they'll make me better ;) Should have a new pencil piece to show you during the week!
