Lion Painting – The Final Stretch

Some of the final details on my Lion painting have now been finished, with a few colour adjustments too.

Plus there is never meat without flies, so just for added reality I put some of those in too.

Hope your enjoying seeing this piece come together

New Oil Painting Ebook – Still Working on It!

Just a very quick update for all of you that are waiting patiently for my new oil painting ebook.

It’s still being completed as I am adding even more content than I originally planned. It started off as a complete beginners guide to oil painting, basically walking the beginner through everything from which paints to purchase, canvas types to color mixing etc I wanted to take all the stigma and fear out of oil painting, but it grew and grew and now contains things like composition and so much more!

So please bear with me – it wont be long now and I’m sure you will think it was worth the wait 🙂

Lion Painting – Final Stages – wildlife Art

I havent had a great deal of time to work on this painting, but things are certainly starting to take shape. Now all of the canvas has been covered with at least 1 layer of paint, I can start to work on the painting as a whole,jumping from one area to another, touching up where I see fit – hopefully 🙂

What’s an Ebook – My Painting Ebooks

What is an ebook?

Every few days I receive emails from people interested in buying my painting tutorials, but some  are confused as to what ebooks actually are. So I thought for this blog post I would just clear up any confusion.

Ebooks are Electronic Books, and that means that they are not printed out on paper as per standard books, but instead you actually read them on your own computer.

When you have purchased a learn to paint ebook from me you are automatically sent (via email) a link which takes you to the ebook file, you then VERY SIMPLY just download the file and it’s right there on your computer for you to enjoy anytime (You don’t need to be online to read them).

All you then do is double-click that file and your ebook opens up.

You will see that the ebook looks just like a normal book or magazine with photographs, text etc and you just click through the pages instead of turning them by hand. The beauty of ebooks is that you get it right away, no waiting for delivery, it’s better for the environment as there is no printed paper, but if for any reason you did want to print something out from it then you can very easily print anything from an individual page to the whole book .

All the above also means that my costs can be kept to a real minimum, which means I can keep the retail price low too.

Hope this clears everything about my learn to paint ebooks up.

The books below are now available 🙂

Something Different from me- Coastal Photographs (Three Cliffs Bay – Swansea)

We are currently enjoying some fantastic weather in Wales (for a change), so I took some time away from the studion to visit Three Cliffs Bay, on the Gower coast, approx 1 1/2 hrs from my home.

Here are just 3 ot the 50 or so photos I took that day.

Adding more details to the Lion Painting – Wildlife Art

I have been adding more details to the Lion painting, and also getting the colours more realistic. Now that is done I can begin to lay in the foreground grasses and also some thicker paint.
