Painting artwork for Dragon Red

This video follows up the video about rough sketches in the video that you can see below. In this video I’m drawing the final artwork for Dragon Red on to Seawhite Heavy Cartridge paper and then painting it with Winsor and Newton Neutral Tint watercolour (link below) to create a greyscale image for my black and white book, Dragon Red, which is the final part of my Dragon Trilogy.

If you want to see even more of this painting and get even more chat, visit my patron channel to see the extra videos.

The Wigtown School Playground Mural

While I was in Wigtown for the book festival I made a mural for the school playground. I began with a day in School drawing children who posed for me. Then I showed the children how to draw too. I use these sketches to make the mural, which I painted onto great big, 8 x 4 foot boards. This weekend the boards went up and , to my huge relief, it all fits together.
