9th-12th april

we are working on a koi and foo dog combo for scott, the basic shapes and colours are in, now just some fine tuning and more shading and detail to go. Scott asked for more muted colours for his piece, so the koi is a more burnt orange and the foo and bluey grey

Amy is a legend. She sat for 7 1/2 hours in one go for the outline last time she was in, and today we did the same with the first of the colour. wow!

another session for brian, his last one was at the tattoo convention two weeks ago where we blasted some red and orange through his dragon. I will be adding more detail to the scales of the dragon, but that can wait until next time to give it more time to completely settle. In the meantime we started on the flowers

and Chris’ sleeve is getting there, it’s wonderfully eclectic mix of things that mean something to Chis, his family background and who he is.
Today we added some background shading, adding drama to the wind and sky behind the tree. Once that has healed, i will make some adjustments to the tonal values, adding more black to the branches of the tree and hopefully to the pictish stone. However, the skin that the stone was tattooed on has a history of psoriasis, so we have to go carefully with it.
The last session will really pull this one together, I’m looking forward to it.
