New Painting For Illuxcon 2015 – Kunzum La

Howdy folks!

Long time no post.. Quite busy teaching this year among other things and have only managed two new large oil paintings for Illuxcon 2015. Two others I have abandoned for another time.

I’ll cut to the chase and let you look at some art., here is the first of my two new paintings – Kunzum La

Enjoy!

 

 

First Pencil Sketch

 

As you can see I flipped the image for the final painting.. still like the original composition!

The gouache studies were done for the benefit of my students. Studies two and three were art directed by my students. They had to describe a lighting scenario for me to paint.

Sky Burial #3

Howdy Folks!

Here is my latest and last painting I finished before Illuxcon. I’m writing this a week out from flying to the US for the show so I should have this hanging on the wall directly in front of me by the time you read this. I wanted to hold this one back until Illuxcon opened.

This is the latest in the series and another large-ish sized canvas. A little more intimate than the others with a closer look at some characters in that world.

I started this one almost three years ago in rough form so I’m glad it’s finally come out.

Enjoy!

Levitation

Howdy Folks,

Here is the scan of my latest science fiction painting, Levitation. This is the final version of the painting that started life as a small watercolour thumbnail way back in 2001!

The actual painting is currently being framed and will soon be heading to Illuxcon along with eleven other paintings.

Here is the final with some detailed images.

Check out this post for a look at past variations of the painting. There are aspects of each that I like but no one version has it all.. so who knows, there may be another version yet to come.

For those interested, there will also be limited edition prints of this painting available very soon.

Enjoy!
