Latest digital painting.
This was made using a split-complimentary palette. I go into more detail about using limited palettes, as well as pretty much everything I've learned so far (technique, sketching, structure, narrative, expression, digital and oil painting) in my classes at paulmoyse.com which are now OPEN! There are no term dates for my classes, all you have to do is register for a course or individual classes, and we can then discuss the date of your first lesson. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment on this blog, to enquire further.
The Bernie painting above happens to be my first digital painting using the Open Source painting software Krita! And I have to say it was a pleasurable experience. Overall, it handles most jobs very well. The brush and zoom controls are very intuitive, and there are tons of customization options for the brushes. The only down side, if I were to compare side by side with Photoshop, as a painting tool, would be that Krita is a little glitchy. But these are very small glitches that can easily be lived with until there's an update, which they do regularly. For a free, open source painting software, I highly recommend it!

Over the last two weeks I've been broadcasting a live event on Google+ that involves me sketching or painting for half-an-hour and then critiquing someone's work for the other half-hour. These are great fun, and a way of sharing a little bit of my process with anyone interested. Here's the link to next week's show:
To request a critique of your work (I choose one piece at random each week), leave a comment on the event page, preferably more than a day before the broadcast is going to start, giving a link to both the work and the reference used to create it.
I look forward to sharing my screen again with you next Tuesday at 9pm!

Got lots of things in various stages of completion that I want to share, but for now here's a hi-res scan of a commission from a few months ago.

I'm returning to posting here because when I moved blogs, I realised I wasn't posting as much, so I guess I'm going to keep posting here in future!
Been working on some new paintings and various other projects in the works, but for now here's a recent one of Adam Sandler I shared a week or two ago on facebook.

Happy New Year everyone! I will aim to do more blogging here in 2014, and I start with a commission. I started this during my exhibition last week, it's of a local celebrity Andy Barrett. Andy is the owner of the Belgian Bar in Ramsgate and La Trapiste in Canterbury and he's quite a character. I'm excited to finish this!
I will do a post about the book very soon, which you can buy here http://paulmoyse.com/store/books/heads-and-shoulders-anatomy-of-caricature/
