Painting the Ganges

So this is the finished painting, I think I took it so far in acrylics that I didn't have that much to do it it in oils, next time round i'll work it up less in acrylics before going in with oils!

Painting the Ganges - Work in Progress!

I've been working on this painting as a birthday present for a friend, based on a photo from our time in India - an incredible sun-rise boat trip on the Ganges. I'm pretty new to painting, and am working from acrylic into oils, i've done the base in acrylic and now i'm hoping to fine-tune it a bit by going to go back into it with oils, it's all a bit ropey but sure we'll see how it goes!

Slow Motion Heroes vs Wall Of Sound

It's been a very busy few months, only getting time to blog stuff now! I finished up college for 2011 at the beginning of December and spent the next couple of weeks developing animations for projection at the Slow Motion Heroes Wall of Sound gig. The three animations looped on a projected background through out the gig. The animations were based on the artwork for three of the EPs. It was my first time doing anything like this, if I was doing it again i'd definitely make a few changes but over all I was pretty happy with the result.

I uploaded just a minute of each animation to Vimeo (see below). On the night the animations were longer with lyrics from the songs overlaid on top. Definitely enjoyable and something i'd like to do again! Unfortunately I took no photos *kicking myself* but I have this pic of the lads soundchecking before the gig with "One Liners" in the background.
