Agnes by MartynCollings
Acrylic on canvas
61cm x 46cm

Was a fun painting to do, no hands, so much easier!

Very happy to get this commission done and sent away.
Black backgrounds are so challenging to paint and photograph!

Thanks again to faestock for the stock reference!

Update: Come up with a name for the character - Agnes
Pencil - A4

Steampunk development sketch for a 'sister' painting for my Edith artwork.

The background will be black, so most details will end up being highlights on the black background.

Many thanks to faestock for the stock reference!
Ruth by MartynCollings

1920's inspired painting, loads of research, lot's of fun!
