Fun night at the Absolut art break party last night on board the QE2. 42 shortlisted entries went down to 6 last night. My journey towards vodka bottle fame ended last night but happy to see so many great entries from the region. Thanks to the @thedominodubai for getting me involved and arranging for the mini exhibition last night!

Quick little 8”x10” oil study of Conor Mcgreggor’s recent mugshot! Around 3 hours I’d say.

I’ve been painting a lot recently, working on small pieces while I plan out and get ready to start making some large paintings again. Most of these little pieces are available to purchase for good prices so give me a shout if you see anything you like!

Hi folks, I’d like to invite you to Join me for a rare demonstration of painting a portrait directly from life.

The demonstration will be in Oil paints and take place over 3 hours, during this time I will discuss my methods and take questions throughout the demonstration.
This promises to be a lively, fun evening so be sure not to miss it.

Fee - 150AED

Here’s a better look at today’s painting (with a couple of changes since the last post) of the great explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger. Used a limited palette for this and a black and white reference image so made up the colour
