Some sweet progress on this sleeve today! #inkjecta

So it's pretty much done!! A few finishing touches to go but this one has been haaaard. Here is a.crop of "spinning yarns" a portrait of my Dad. I'm not posting a full picture until the finalists have been announced but this is my entry for the Adam portraiture award. My first year entering and I am nervous AF. Thanks for looking and thanks for the great support!!!

Last day of painting Today!!! In have never spent this much time in such a short time.in front of just one canvas, it's been super stressful but it has taught me how to getting a good mindset for doing long hours of creativity, the grind is real! However especially late last night and this morning I found I have never smiled so much in front of a canvass either :)

A bit of a surreal time at the beach the other morning. Sea fog still in being added to by the wet sand steaming in the summer sun, the out of the mist emerged horses!

Sitting down to what could be the most important painting of my career....... I have 4 days :/ wish me luck!!!!

A short session but good progress on this villains sleeve!

Sweet painting tutorials with @anna_belle_tattoo today. It was super fun to hang out and show them around! I love teaching people how to make painting a bit easier, and it really helps me to analyse what the hell I'm doing:)

Free stuff ninjas!!!! @inglourious_hoko @nicknoonantattoo

All.done today with this surreal cover up. So hard but so fun!!!!

All set up and ready to go!!! My latest paintings are here and for sale!!!! $1800 for this weekend only at the festival, if you want to grab one let me know asap before some lucky punter takes one home!!!

So today was huge. The time lapse shown is the end of a couple of hours , so it shows how long today was! Overall I am happy with where this is going, I have corrected some of the mistakes in my drawing, and left some of the ones I like. I could probably spend another two days on the underpainting stage but I think come the morning I will want to crack into the colour blocking! Fun times!!!!

So here are a couple of time lapses of my drawing process. I personally love seeing the process from other artists and enjoy sharing mine. I sweated over the sketching and trying to come up with a good composition, but in the end I thought "stuff this " and did all my work on the canvas. You can see me measuring proportions and correcting myself, starting with shapes and centerlines and working outward from there. This is a big, important and deeply personal project for me, and I am stoked to share it with anyone who is interested :)
