Digital still life of a toy car



Procreate, toy car still life.

It (the actual toy!) can be seen on the windowsill at the Blue Door here in Aberdeen, along with some of my origional art too! Not that I am wanting to hype this up either, its just that its well, quite a little town you know! Also the information service / tourism office works out of the very same building, until lunch time (some days) so just in case you are touring the nearby karoo, be sure to stop in. 

More on Aberdeen soon.

Ms De Beers Residence


Here I am at the De Beer Residence in Aberdeen, this proved a challenging subject, and a strange building in hindsight. Many of them are in town, albeit beautiful and of a former time like some sort of spectral trail. I tried my best to capture the morning light and local colours and was also interested in trying to create depth with the trees and the varying tones in foreground and background.
