Jawas on Tatooine – Star Wars – Oil Painting

Paintings

Utinni!

I have been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember, the OT was finished up almost a decade before I was born and I was born into a Star Wars household.

My favourite creatures from the Star Wars universe are without a doubt, Jawas. Ironically, I didn’t realise this until the release of the Mandalorian and seeing the Jawas again but in a different context, the nostalgia value hit high.

This in turn inspired me to want to turn out some Jawa themed artworks, this post here shows the first which is a bit of a character study style piece; made with the intention to inform a small series of future Jawa paintings that will have a different look to them to this one.

Nude Geisha Girl Oil Painting

While not strictly a Geisha, this piece was worked on and created as a figure study with an emphasis on capturing the female form through oil paint. The Haiku was one that I thought of while in the process of working on the artwork.

This original painting is currently available on my Etsy shop

“Keep Doing This In Remembrance Of Me.” – Luke 22:19,20 – Oil on Canvas

During the past few weeks of the UK lockdown, amongst delving into a new series of artworks I have spent a decent amount of time doing alla prima painting sessions and I’ve set up a few still life pieces to paint. It’s been nice to have the freedom of time to paint for the sake of painting and to learn, observe and explore different techniques and methods to my usual work.

The Fallen Tower – Hadleigh Castle Ruins – Oil Painting Sketch – A Historical Fantasy Landscape Illustration

Paintings, Uncategorized

A retreat of Edward III, a muse for John Constable, a local ruin for inspiration…

Hadleigh castle is a place that I absolutely love to visit, it’s a 15 minute drive from home and is situated both strategically and beautifully nestled in the countryside of Essex, overlooking the Thames estuary.

For this post I won’t be going into the details of the castle’s history as this is merely a blog post to show an oil sketch that I have recently created and not a finished painting; that will come in the future.

The Fallen Tower – Hadleigh Castle – Oil Paint Sketch

As the summer draws closer I am making plans to spend a good bit of time around these ruins, sketching on site and hopefully doing a bit of plein air painting, working towards a definitive oil painting showing the ruins and the surrounding landscape in all their glory.

The part of the ruins shown in this sketch however, I intend to incorporate into a fantasy artwork, either as the main focal point, or a background piece depending on where the mood and composition takes me at that stage

The Lord of the Rings Project – Part VI

Middle Earth

After a long and turbulent journey through my Lord of the Rings Project we have finally reached the end of the road. It started off as just an idea and some simple sketches, gradually evolving into a depiction of my favourite scene from the narrative, invented and recorded by the genius J.R.R. Tolkien, then brought to life in the cinema by Peter Jackson.
