Bradford Literature Festival workshops
I’m very excited to be running iPad art workshops as part of this years Bradford Literature Festival on the 1st and 2nd of July.
Girl with a gold pendant (2023)
My first finished piece for 2023 was inspired by a photograph used on the cover of Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Credited as a photographic portrait of Julie Manet, 1894, I loved the lighting, mood and composition! My portrait, measuring 28x41cm, was created using charcoal, pastel and gold leaf on paper.
Blood Roots (2022)
I was asked to create a cover/poster for a local flower show. I’m not entirely sure this is what they had in mind, but I enjoyed myself. Maybe they were after something a little more “village craft fair”… 2D digital composition created in Procreate on iPad Limited edition of 10 available on Opensea
Self Portrait in the Red
I try to paint a self-portrait every year, and as 2022 was quickly slipping away, I thought I’d better get a move on. Painted in 3 hours on my old iPad Pro (gen 2) using Procreate (acrylic brush).
A collection of 1/1 digital collages, hand-painted in Procreate on iPad, using AI assets generated by ArtBreeder’s Collage beta Even though my artwork is very formal in appearance, the creation process is largely based around embracing chance, accident and chaos. This element usually comes from doodling or photography (specifically stills from videos), but for this…
A series of 2D digital compositions all created using the same image asset. I thought that they had the feel of a 1970s rock vinyl sleeve so I mocked one up for a fictional Wolfmother album. These have all been created on the iPad using Procreate and Mextures apps, and are available as 1/1 NFTs…
iPad painting workshop in Chelmsford
Today I’ve been delivering a series of digital art workshops at New Hall School in Chelmsford. Focussing on both digital painting and 2D digital composition, we took a deep dive into what was possible using the award-winning Procreate app on Apple’s iPad. Previously a palace to Henry VIII, New Hall School was an incredible location…
Red Ophelia (2022)
2D composition created on iPad with Procreate app
My Apple “Start Something New” portrait series is available on Opensea Back in 2015, Apple commissioned me to produce a series of paintings on their iPad Air 2. These portraits were to be exhibited on their website and in Apple Stores around the world, along with artwork by 12 other international artists. Produced using Procreate,…
This 1/1 NFT has been created to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022. It is available on Opensea More of my NFTs can be seen in my NFT gallery
NFT drop: Red Beard
My digital painting, Red Beard (a study of flesh under mixed lighting), was painted on iPad using Procreate when it had just recently been released. It was an experiment with the app’s “Old brush”, which gave a nice loose “painterly” feel that I’d been trying to capture within the digital medium. In 2012, Red Beard…
Self portrait with ring (2021): iPad painting
iPad painting self portrait for 2021. I try to do at least one each year. The NFT has been minted and it is available as a one-off on Opensea
