Today’s Drawing

I thought I’d post a few behind the scenes photographs I took of Rory while he was working and setting up. More images from the shoot itself to come later! Please click on the […]

The type of paint I use depends on the project or aesthetic that I feel is appropriate to the idea of the artwork I’m making at the time. So I am familiar with acrylics, oils and alkyds including their mediums. I’m also familiar with a not so mainstream paint called encaustic. The word encaustic originates […]

Today’s Drawing

This is a drawing of one of my leather chairs. I am currently working on new ideas. I’m particularly interested in objects that I either acquire spontaneously or by seeking them out. More to come later.    Leather Chair (development sketch) – Lee Gascoyne 2012

Development studies for ‘Transition’

I have been having a bit of a tidy up in my studio today and stumbled across a couple of developmental studies for my recent painting Transition. I thought I’d share them to show a little bit of how a study can relate to the finished piece. I also sometimes create a digital master to […]
