Parsley Woods
This woodland scene is inspired by the beautiful ancient woods and riverside walks of Cornwall and the local hedgerows closer to my home that are always brimming with Cow Parsley in spring and early summer. I always love to see Cow Parsley in bloom as it's a sign that spring is fully in its stride and summer is just around the corner.

Painted entirely in Corel Painter using a single custom oil brush.

High quality prints are available here: link.

Light And Dark

I've recently finished two rather different paintings.

The Raven King by runique The Grumpling Is Not Playing by runique

One is The Raven King, a woodland themed image inspired by a character from Susanna Clarke's book Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. I haven't tried to be too faithful to the character as desribed in the book, it's more of an interpretation.  In fact I almost didn't name the image The Raven King because it's not really fan art (in my mind anyway) and I don't want fans of the book to see it as an attempt to accurately portray anything.

The second image is a fun caricature character study. It was an attempt to capture the sulky moods my little nephew goes into when things aren't going his way in sport. I turned him into a grumpy gargoyle as this is exactly how he sits when he goes into one of his "I'm not playing" moods, and he's been known to take his ball with him too!

Next painting I'm undecided on, but I'm feeling drawn towards something with a bit more gravitas.
