Style 3 – Tilda

Similar to an illustrative style, these pieces are outlined and accented in pen, within controlled compositions of nature. I want them to feel relaxed, simple and almost childlike.

It’s taking some practice, and I don’t feel I’m quite there yet to produce the quality I’m aiming for in this style, but I hope it will be worth it when I get there. Your thoughts? Too simple?

Tree Surgeon Painting

The scan isn’t doing this piece justice, the nuance is a little lost. However, I was pleased with the masking fluid working in my favour again.

The subject is a friend of mine who works as a tree surgeon, who posts really cool pictures online of his enviable vocation. I wanted a feeling of movement and wilderness, as I think that sums up his work.

Hope you like it Alex! I love painting trees.
