BFX Masterclass Live Study Painting

I painted this live during a Masterclass I held at BFX Festival in Bournemouth in October 2018. I gave the attendees a chance to pick between some reference images that they'd like me to draw and they decided on (my favourite) an image by Angelika Horschlager which is shown below. I wanted to show them that you can study an image to teach yourself how to simplify real life down for illustration and concept art, taking away detail before adding it in in your own style or as you like to tell a story. My painting was definitely more vibrant on the Wacom the festival provided, but it still has a nice atmosphere.

It was nice to be able to draw whilst talking and answering questions constantly, I was so fearful I wouldn't be able to do it.
