The two still-life paintings on this post were done as demonstrations at a class I was giving. The charcoal drawing was done to illustrate tone and form before proceeding to the painting above. The painting below was done at a following session to demonstrate drawing with a brush.

FROM THE BOOKROOM
Reference is made in my posts to books from my collection which I have been putting together for thirty five years. Though it is not great in size many of the publications are long out of print. I also have an extensive collection of cuttings from newspapers and magazines on a wide range of subjects.
A SELECTION OF PAST EXHIBITION INVITATIONS
The Fantasia Collection is a complete contrast to my normal painting style crossing the barrier between fine art and design. Each subject begins as a random series of free-style thumbnail drawings created more from the sub conscience than the conscience mind. They reflect my love of pattern and colour and are limited only by the boundaries of the mind. The Fantasia images are available as limited edition Giclee Prints. For further information regarding sizes and prices follow the link to Studio Tomas King shop.
A process for making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing with fade resistant archival inks. The word giclee is an invented word derived from the French language word 'le gicleur' meaning nozzle, or more specifically 'gicler' meaning 'to squirt, spurt or spray'.
