For the last couple of days I have been working on a David Tennant portrait following a request from one of my Facebook fans.
There is still some work that needs to be done on the finer details but it is, more or less, complete.
If anyone is interested in purchasing it please get in touch. It will be sold as an original portrait i.e. one only, and will be signed and authenticated as original.

Most of my work for the past few months has been on customer orders and I have had little time to paint 'for fun'. As many of you know I love to paint with a photo-realistic style and do a few speed paintings now and again (although it has been a couple of months since my last!).
Anyway, I took a little 'chill' time on Friday and drew Whoopi Goldberg in a salute to her role in Sister Act. I'm still unsure why I chose to paint this one but it was enjoyable.
The painting took about 4 hours and was drawn with my usual tools of the trade: my trusty Apple iMac (oh how I wish I had left the Windows environment years ago...the Mac is just awesome to work with), Wacom 4 graphics tablet, and Photoshop.
I exhibited it at Eumundi today and it received plenty of admiration, despite it only being a quick 'sketch'.
Enjoy! (Feel free to comment)
I was up at Eumundi market today exhibiting my work when a little girl approached me. Her mother was engrossed in delving through the trinkets on one of the stalls. The little girl politely asked me "Do you have any balloons?". Unfortunately I had to advise I did not and, being intrigued by the little girl's approach, I asked her how old she was. "I am 3" she replied, "why, how old are you?".
I chuckled a little to which the girl looked at me somewhat puzzled and retorted, "Why are you laughing? I am serious, how old are you?".
What ensued was probably the most meaningful conversation I had all day. This little girl was a charm and brought a smile to my face. If only everyone had her innocence and charm the world would be a better place.
