Hours

chromabesque - hours

A painting of one of my original characters. Tried the technique of painting in black and white (grisaille) and then overlay (or glaze) colours on subsequent layers. The ipad app ‘Procreate’ was used to create this painting.

Filigree

chromabesque - filigree

A painting made on the iPad. This was an enjoyable painting, and I liked the different categories of brushes, such as the calligraphy and the traditional media styles. I chose a vivid colour scheme, with a hint of earthy colours for the background.

Grace

chromabesque-grace-progress-shots A piece inspired by ballet, ballroom dancing and eighteenth century fashion. The left leg symbolises the dancer’s stance. Reference used for the shoe and for the dress, to gain inspiration and to understand the style.

Mikhail character design

chromabesque-mikhail-character-design

A design of one of my original characters, Mikhail. This would be his winter wear, and more designs of his daily wear are in progress. As he is a jeweller, the cane and collar piece tie in with his design, though the cane is hardly used in his daily life. Some reference used for trousers and shoes.
