Macaw on a Chimney
Watercolour of one of the local, semi-feral parrots that can be found here in Kirkby Stephen. Prints, mugs and other paraphernalia featuring this handsome devil can be found on my new Society6 page - Click here!
Parrot In Flight
Watercolour painting of a parrot flying over the sheep field behind my house.
I live in a small town in north west England called Kirkby Stephen. It's surrounded by sheep fields and empty moors and it tends to be grey and wet. It's also home to a small colony of semi-feral parrots that live in a sanctuary just outside of town and can often be seen sitting on chimney stacks or flying over the grazing sheep.
Trying to be artsy whilst practising my watercolours. There's probably a lot of symbology there somewhere. The fade out to the left was intentional, by the way. Can't quite remember what I thought it represented though. Looking towards a brighter future maybe? Sure, we'll go with that.
One With The Forest
San from Princess Mononoke, painted in watercolours. It's supposed to depict San as being one with the forest. Kinda looks like a terrible fungal infection
Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind from World of Warcraft. Painted in acrylics
The Lady Still Stands
Watercolours. Painted in response to political events in America as a tribute to the struggles and resilience of the LGBTQ community.
Almost The Main Attraction
Acrylic practice piece, repainted from The Main Attraction by Vettriano
Pharah from Overwatch, just as a practice piece with gouache
