Pet portrait…..landscape…..why not do both!

This began as a traditional portrait of my best mate Kuma, but somewhere along the way i decided to show more of his persona with some water, sun & space. Water is Ku’s happy place, from an inch of mud to the surf beaches near home hes happiest when in the water. The rest of the painting was playing around with shapes, colours & layer methods…Commissions are always welcome, call or email me to discuss your vision for a new artwork for your home or office.

Getting right with colour

I came across this wonderful tool made by artist Richard Robinson – The Gamut Mask which is free from his site  http://www.livepaintinglessons.com/gamutmask.php

Easy to use with any medium, digital or traditional. This cool colour wheel allows for a huge range of palettes to bring harmony to your work. Dont forget I love to see What you create using any of the tools featured on my blog, from my custom brushes & palettes to apps etc ive found useful in my own work. I think i might feature some of it here, so send me your best projects! ❤️🦁🎨image

 

Drawing Declan

A how to on pain ting a portrait of a baby using any digital program or pretty much any medium….its not that different. I used maybe 4 or 5 brushes on this…sorry i cant share as they are ones I’ve got from other artists but there are plenty of  generic brushes you can use. I haven’t gone into a lot of detail on using tools in the program but if anyone’s interested I can certainly do a more in depth tutorial. Cheers – Lion Art Drawing Declan©LionArt-MichelleWebb
