I’m adding more to my YouTube channel each week!

– Hey guys, I’m working hard to provide videos of my process painting in both Painter 2018 & Procreate & to begin some tutorials shortly also, esp little tips for Painter. I’m aiming to start a Patreon page in the next month, as I really love sharing my art & what I’ve learnt with you all but in order to do so, I really need some sponsorship… it takes quite a bit of time preparing & editing videos, & I want this this to also be beneficial to you guys. On Patreon I will be giving my sponsors some special rewards & thank you gifts- custom brushes, artwork & other goodies I’m working on. Please follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel & watch out for news on launch of Patreon….. thanks, love you all & thank you for your continued support! ❤️ Video page via menu above, has link to YouTube channel for your convenience.

Fathers Day, Birthdays, Christmas….A piece of art commissioned makes for a special gift for a loved one or friend. Engagement, wedding or birth of a new baby….no gift could be sweeter than a commissioned portrait.

My artwork is a combination of traditional skills & new age technology, contemporary & nostalgic with a twist & the opportunity to create something truly special & unique.

Call, email, or fill out contact form to discuss options & ideas…

It’s not to early to order for Christmas, the more time I have the better, I can only take a certain no to ensure you receive your artwork in time.

I have various pieces available as prints, & will be adding some beautiful bags, scarves & clothing in my shop next week….Follow me to receive notifications of this & other exciting news!

Sculpting in Painter 2017

As you guys know, I’m a firm believer in learning & studying regardless of how experienced you are. I’m currently doing form studies, particularly the human form (it’s always been the subject that I find most challenging) in between working on Fabulous Ferdi. Sculpting is the method from which we really are able to build form, so I’m working totally line & sketch free…Big brushes zoomed out with greyscale, no details (hair, clothes, Jewell’s etc) This forces me to use edges, these show the change in facial planes & provide contrast without the need of high contrasting values. I will paint this woman/girl over & over, the aim is to work on previous versions issues & see the progress from repeated study of same subject. While doing this I’ve begun developing a set of sculpting brushes for Painter 2017, however most will work with previous versions. They will be a set for both concept & portrait artists alike, tailored to produce clean edges & a couple of blenders to soften where smoother gradiation is needed. They & other sets will be available for purchase in a few months, once I’ve upgraded my site with a shop.  Happy Sculpting! ☺️IMG_7216Day 1 – Form study challenge

The journey

Explore, challenge, grow…..This is what I try to achieve with each piece I paint. Exploring new styles, tools, subjects….Challenging myself with composition, lighting, textures & subject matter, you cannot Grow without doing so. Most artists want to become better, & their work to evolve…Even those who create as a hobby, the satisfaction of achievement has no boundary! I’m still finding my voice as an artist, & have only been painting proffesionally the past year…(I worked as a graphic designer before I became ill a number of years ago & had to stop working.) I studied many subjects at Melbourne School of art, but graphics was the proffesion that provided instant income…& I had a child to provide for. This journey of my little sailor searching for the magic cherry blossom, comes from my journey…Where is my cherry blossom…Only time & hard work will tell. To my young & new artists, that follow me….Challenge yourself to draw/paint what you see, a 5min sketch can teach you so much…Dont get disheartened/frustrated…It takes time & practise, even the most naturally gifted artists need to learn about values, perspective etc. Most of all, enjoy the experience of learning…Be proud when you achieve something new. There’s lots of resources on the internet to learn to draw/paint from…YouTube tutorials, process sheets & tools like colour charts, & 3d models. It doesn’t matter what medium you are working in the basics are the same, value, form, perspective, lighting….Basics that are the foundation of every great piece of art.  If your serious, & hope to work in the industry…Find artists whose work you admire & are offering courses, preferably those who have the experience & expertise behind them, with good reviews on their classes….You don’t want to learn bad habits from an artist who doesn’t know the fundamentals. So on this note, go forth & practise, study, have fun & if your using my brushes…Show me, I love to see your work! Soon I will be adding a feature page & showing off a piece of your work each month. IMG_7174

Fantasy portrait – Cry Wolf

I’ve finished my little wolf girl, really had fun painting her. This is the first portrait that I’ve done purely from my imagination……let my mind just take me where it wanted without restrictions. This was personal, stemming from my Dads stories of the boy who cried wolf, &my love for predators esp those being hunted &poached to extinction.  She is the moon goddess, protecting the creatures of the night, the wolf is both her soulmate & protector. I love using Corel Painter, its an amazing program….feels so organic & easy to customise to suit your style. Painter 2017, has some awesome new brushes great for both traditional & pure digital artists alike……..if you haven’t tried it, jump on to their site & get a trial…..i know you will love it!  I used the mirror tool a lot in this, another first for me…will def use it more. I will be entering my wolfie girl in an upcoming exhibition, but im open to offers or inquiries on purchasing her. I hope she captures your heart, enjoy viewing her but please do not copy or reproduce her without my consent, sharing in social media is fine …..just make sure shes credited with a link to me……thanks muchly 😊❤ ©LionArt-Michelle Webbcry-wolf
