I am an artist from the UK, now living in Stockholm Sweden who has previously been on MM (up to 2011) with an extensive photography portfolio, but I have now reverted back to my artistic roots and started to paint and draw once again. This is fast becoming a passion. My main media is pencil or acrylic, although I have painted in oil, as well as working with charcoal and pastel. I plan to experiment more as soon as I have the space.
I am using MM mainly to network with other artists and occasionally post castings for models. I create a wide style of images. However, I am overwhelmingly here as an artist who paints figurative work. Landscapes don't quite seem at home here!
Usually I like to work from photographs, preferably ones that I have posed, so I have exactly what I want with regard to lighting, pose and expression. However, i have worked from life. Usually, I will have a bank of ideas and I will shoot many ideas in one short shoot to give me the poses I can then shoot in my own time.
If I approach you, or post a casting call, it will be to create some basic images (poses) that I want to paint. To be honest, for most models, they will be an easy job, little make up needed, usually nude (but not always), and very rarely ever seeing the light of day as an image. I do not publish photographs.
Obviously, I welcome tags, friend requests and enquiries. I am not in a position not to. I will occasionally post casting calls as well.
At the moment I have one list. Its my 'Must Paint' list! If I put you on it, it usually means I have seen what you have to offer and really think that your particular look will work for a painting or composition I have in mind. Email me about your inclusion by all means!
