I’m taking a few minutes to work on a character for my new book. She will be in painted in oils eventually but I’m still practising her and working on her wardrobe and demeanour.

Here’s another sneak peek from the book. It’s a picture that I redid after finally seeing the whole book together. It’s interesting, that final stage of work. Toward the end of a long book, I often find that my style and technique have developed over time so that, when I look back, my early pictures [...]
There are no words for my relief and joy tonight! I have finished my book. For the last 6 weeks I have worked till 2am (on average ) to get it done and used every moment I reasonably could. I feel like I did 4 months work in one. It’s been crazy. And in the [...]
