I'm exploring the potential of mixing several of my favourite media together in one image. I'm really excited by the possibilities and it's opened up a whole new way to make pictures! I'm staying within my usual subject area of birds and wildness but I have a head full of images that involve women, too.
Above: 'Oysters Divide', using an oil paint sketch of some oystercatchers (intended for a current commission), layered with ice bubbles – just to experiment with texture – and my first attempt at digital painting.
Below: 'Release Me', using a pen sketch of a girl, a photo of some pigeons and a background of carbon on oil paper. I'm learning so much and it's great fun.
