bugle street Southampton painting

Painted in September 2020 this view shows Bugle Street in the Southampton 'Old town'. Looking south, the docks/ Town Quay area can be seen at the end of the road. This road is very old and right next to the location of where this painting was created is Tudor House, a museum housed in a large building from that very era.

Dinosaur Mother in chair after Whistler - WIP stages

Dinosaur Mother in chair after Whistler  - WIP stages

Whistlers mother dinosaur illustration in stages.
3 stages of the 'Whistler' dino illustration

Created in early January 2021 this humorous take on a famous Victorian painting was digitally painted using 'Auto Sketchbook Pro'. The original that it was based on is called “Arrangement in Grey and Black, No. 1: Portrait of the Artist’s Mother”, thought sometimes it is more simply known as “Whistler's Mother”.

The first image above shows the rough drawing of the composition. The document is quite small at this size, approx 1000px x 1000px. Moving to the second image the drawing has now had colour painted in, based on the original Whistler painting used for reference. The final image shows the completed illustration which has been enlarged to 5000px x 5000px and then repainted to give a finer, finished piece of artwork.

The completed dinosaur illustration can be seen in detail by following this link.

Whistler dinosaur mother illustration

James Abbott McNeill Whistler's famous painting from 1871 is taken and given a slight twist placing it in an alternate dinosaur world! This digital illustration was done in early January 2021 and shows an armoured plated dinosaur, similar to a Stegosaurus replacing the original subject of the painting, the mother of Whistler. It is sized at 5000px x 5000px and painted using Auto Sketchbook Pro. This artwork can be viewed in greater detail by following this link.
