A quick collage of commissions over the last couple of weeks - work is nice and steady at the moment. A truck dealers 60th, a customs officer's send off and two weddings.
The girls face is a series of 'face only' jobs I've been doing for several corporate clients - it was almost speed painting, for me, pleased how it turned out. They're A4 size and are used instead
of a photo in company printed material and their websites. Nice jobs.
The surf one I can't let go without giving a plug for Paul Lasaine, he's in my links, who paints the most stunning waves - and I have to do a lot of them - give yourself a treat and check out his work. Nearest I could find to an 'on line' lesson. Court Jones is also no novice when it comes to painting good surfing waves either.

Tel said...

I've had a steady flow, the recession - touch wood - doesn't seem to have bitten yet !
Might be all smoke and mirrors.................. something for incompetent politicians to blame all their ills on !

Hi, Thanks for your comments, I love your style, it's clean and technical, I have a hard time finishing my pieces before I move on to the next one, I'm still a newbie in caricatures so I am exploring different styles before I settle, I see you follow most of the caricatures I follow, keep posting!! and do WIP's as often as you can!

Tel said...

Thanks David - you've got some really to notch work on your Blog, newbie or not !!
I'll do another WIP when I've got a nice subject to get my teeth into - our PM, Kevin Rudd, springs to mind.

Hi Tel!!!
First of all, thank you very much for the text you wrote about myself on your page. I'm touched.
So for my Caine drawing. I didn't get a chance to find the right reference I was looking for. I wanted to find a really good one with his glasses.

Your caricatures are always superb.
Love the dogs on the surfing board.

Thanx again for everything!!

Take care

Tel said...

Thanks Dominic - my pleasure, your stuff deserves a few arrows pointing to it.
My caricatures flop a few times believe me - I just don't post those one's - I'd love to see you have a crack at Kevin Rudd ( our Prime Minister ) no one here seems to be able to really do a 'pearler' of his face.
