My muse is consistently exquisite and strange and lovely in equal measure.

Some more of what I am working on currently. I like to start fast, gain momentum and thoroughly exhaust myself painting, so I work out my sketches beforehand in a big hardbacked book, before transferring them to canvas. Ideally, I get 4-5 sketched out on canvas before I begin painting so I can work through without having to draw again.
Unfinished (still have fur to define, and highlights on the drape of the cloth)
No base, no sketch, no prep work. This is painted directly on canvas from the reference shots I took, it is for part of a triptych.
Think that I shall be off to Dublin to get my own tools for more of this, found it so simple and primal to work with blunt force and literally carve something out of an organic thing.
