|Features||The method I use for the portraiture of mine is somewhat different to the conventional. I paint (with a Wacom tablet and paintbrush nib) digitally, from scratch - of course!|
In my works I try to put as much detail as possible. This is probably due to some compulsive disorder! I tend to work in at around 400-500x zoom, fussing over the wee hair here or there, or the mark somewhere else. Sometimes, there can be up to three hundred layers!!
I can do styles other than photorealism, however.
Once I'm done, the artwork is printed (the method is different to regular printing) with acrylic inks onto a lisa 390gms 100 year canvas over the course of several days. Thereafter its lacquered and UV protected. Finally I apply additional texture with a matte sculpture gel and paintbrush, just to add a little more.
Portraits can take anything from two to three weeks, although some are faster depending on how busy it is.
