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!

Interzone #252 Illustrations

Howdy Folks,

Two illustrations for IZ magazine to share this time, the cover and one interior painting.

The interior painting is for a wonderful story titled, Diving into the Wreck by Val Nolan. The design of the ship is a direct homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey. I was painting the box art for Taschen’s upcoming box set of the Making of 2001, (more about that next post), so it was foremost on my mind and seemed to fit perfectly to this story. Incidentally, the artwork on the Taschen 2001 box as shown on their website is not the final artwork, they seem to be using an early digital mock up for the time being.

The cover painting for IZ #252 was serving double duty in that it had to work as a cover painting and work as a study for an upcoming large format Ankaris project painting that I will show at Illuxcon later this year. I did the same with IZ #251 cover as well.

Anyway, here are the paintings, enjoy!

 

Diving into the Wreck IZ #252, 19″ x 13.25″, Oil on paper.

 

Cover IZ#252, 19″ x 13.5″, Oil on paper.

 

Interzone Cover #251 – Levitation

Howdy Folks!

Another update with the next Interzone cover for issue 251.

This painting started life as a small watercolour sketch, became a small oil painting study (as seen in Spectrum 20) and has progressed here as the cover painting for Interzone’s next issue and doubles as larger study for a final painting that is currently in progress. The format may be different but I wanted to see the structure at full size and alter the colour and lighting a bit for more air.

The final Levitation painting will be in my favorite wide format at 46″ x 18″ (116cm x 46cm).

Enjoy!
