Paintings: Easter Bunnies

Easter is here. Rabbits, or at least one rabbit is on everybody’s mind, to celebrate the occasion and because it was suggested that I should do some bright and colourful paintings here’re three bunny pictures at Easter. The purple one The blue one

Painting: Hope Is Dead

A simple one really, hope is dead. When you’re having a bad day you can sometimes think that there’s no future, no light at the end of the tunnel, no hope. After something dies we either burn or bury it so here is hope’s final resting place:

Painting: Anger

This painting is a representation of the feeling of anger. The idea that you’re getting warmer with a headache that feels like it’s about to explode, the fire building inside and erupting out of your head and hands. The clothing becoming white hot as it contains some of what’s trying to explode in all directions. […]

Painting: Tails (From Sonic)

Miles Prower, more commonly known as Tails was the only major Sonic character left for me to paint. Today I’ve done him and have completed all I intended with Sonic. It’s been nice knowing what my paintings should look like before doing them. Of this collection Eggman was probably the most difficult to do and […]

Painting: Dr Eggman (From Sonic)

Every hero has a villain and it just happens that the evil Dr Eggman is the enemy of the heroes in my last two paintings. This sonic character has quite a few features and different colours on him which has made him the hardest one to paint so far. Once again the paint has made […]

Painting: Sonic the Hedgehog

I’ve painted Knuckles the Echidna and enjoyed doing it so it only made sense to do the main man/beast/thing next. Sonic himself, the blue speedy hedgehog easily recognisable to anyone who has heard of him and now painted by me. The paper that I’m using curls at the corners from the wetness of the paint […]

Painting: Knuckles (From Sonic)

When I was younger I was a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog and his animated animal friends. Knuckles the Echidna was the height of cool at that age and there’s still something striking about his appearance. I had a spare piece of card which I painted red. It sat there for two days before […]

Painting: Picasso Style

I’ve been told that my favourite style with my ready mixed paints is similar to Picasso’s pictures. I know I’m nowhere near his level but I thought I’d leave my style for a while and try and paint a woman in Picasso’s style. After doing this I thought it didn’t really look like a Picasso […]

Painting: A Dodgy Geezer

I’ve realised how much better watercolours work when you’re not so much painting with them as colouring in. I decided to draw a charming old gent that looked a bit Victorian but when I was done he looked more like a criminal of some kind, either way I wouldn’t trust him. He’s the height of […]

Painting: Alien

This picture was painted using both watercolours and ready mixed paints on top of a drawing that my sister (Paige Barstow) had done. I finished it off by using a pen to draw over some of the lines. I accidentally spilled some tomato sauce on the drawing so she thought it was ruined. Understandably, she […]

Marvel Stamp Picture

There is a range of Marvel themed stamps out at the moment. I have collected a few of these and with them I created this framed decorative piece. Hulk, Thor, Black Panther, Spider-man, Peggy Carter and Captain Britain all feature on the stamps. The stamps are glued to a background painted red with ready mixed […]

Painting: Abstract Marcus (From Borderlands)

Well, I’ve finally found my style when it comes to painting people. I’ve done Lilith from Borderlands and I thought she was one of the best characters in the series but this guy, Marcus Kincaid is the best, he’s just got so many great things to say and his personality is really believable. “If it […]
