I've now got myself a YouTube channel foe Dean Sidwell Art.
Not got much on there at the moment, just the one video, but will will try to get some more stuff on there when I can.
Here's a little video I made featuring my artwork, it's really just a slideshow with some music, but you might like it. works in progress
Here's a preview of one of the pieces I'm working on at the moment. This is titled Stargazer.
It's a bit different to some of my stuff and I'm enjoying experimenting and working with colour pencils at the moment.
It's one of the largest drawings I've worked on for a while too, at size A2.
This will not be finished in time for the opening of my exhibition but will be added if at some point if possible.
Work in progress pic of a large colour pencil drawing I'm working on.
Still quite a bit of work to do on it, but it's getting there.
This is a large A2 sized drawing (420 x 594mm).
I'm using Derwent Coloursoft pencils, a few Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils and a white watercolour pencil for the stars and highlights.
Many thanks to Lady-Death-Stock
for the reference the girl is based on - lady-death-stock.deviantart.co…
Another work in progress piece is this mixed media piece pictured below.
Based on the british sci fi show Doctor Who, it's a drawing of the Doctor played by Peter Capaldi.
This will be part colour and part black & white.
It was originally going to have a colour pencil background but I decided to use acrylic paint instead.
Will be finished in a few days and will be added to my exhibition when it's done.
You can see more work in progress pics of both of these and more WIPs at my website - deansidwellart.weebly.com/work…
All the best to everyone and thanks!
