In the June issue of Leisure Painter, I continue my marine life painting series in acrylics with a jellyfish. I take an experimental approach and complete the whole contemporary painting without the use of any brushes. The background is laid down with a roller and a jellyfish takes shape with the help of PVA glue and an eye dropper!

Behind the Scenes
Get a sneak peak into the technique I used to paint clown fish playing in a sea anemone. The full demonstration is featured in the July issue of Leisure Painter magazine.

July 2023

Continuing my Leisure Painter magazine series on painting marine life using acrylics, my subject this month is three cute clown fish playing in a sea anemone. The fish are drawn into the scene with white chalk. For the background, I demonstrate the fundamental technique of mixing shadow, midtone and highlight colours applied with a dry brush layering technique.
