The Giant under the Snow

This is a preparation drawing for an illustration for a book titled 'The Giant Under the Snow.'
It's one of the first drawings I've done using prismapencils, which I bought on recommendation (despite them being very hard to find in UK!).

Prismapencil, graphite, and blue pencil on paper, 420x297mm.


Painted when I was particularly inspired by the light catching some blooms.

Watercolour on textured paper. 33.5x42cm

Not quite Tarzan

Vignette illustration from Spelling Magic. I was trying for a clumsy Tarzan type - this illustration had to sit opposite one with gorillas in the jungle so it seemed a complementary choice of scenario.
Oil on board 30x40 cm

A sunny day at the beach

I painted this little picture on a sunny day on summer. Whenever I look at it I am reminded of a Famous Five adventure, perhaps because of the explorers on the beach.
