Self-taught artist Mark started por­traits around four years ago and took up dig­i­tal art af­ter the guilt of own­ing a Bam­boo tablet and leav­ing it to gather dust grew too much to bear.

“Por­trai­ture has led me to meet so many in­ter­est­ing peo­ple, help­ing my own con­fi­dence and self-be­lief in count­less ways,” he says.

Mark’s tech­nique roughly in­volves us­ing a ba­sic grid or method of plot­ting out the ini­tial line-work be­fore mov­ing on to block­ing in colour or val­ues, be­fore re­fin­ing the piece. In the past few years his work­flow has re­laxed much more and now has an oil paint feel.

“A piece that had no real plan­ning. I just saw the im­age on­line and knew I had to paint it. I liked how ab­stract it be­came, due to the re­frac­tion of the wa­ter.”

“One of my per­sonal favourites and a real pain to com­plete. I wanted to get more vari­a­tion into my art and push my­self to big­ger and bet­ter things, so the hard sur­face spec­u­lar and matte fab­rics re­ally drew me in.”
