Sean was born in France, but now lives in Scotland where he works on games and films for clients such as Wizards of the Coast. “I went to university to study product design, but very quickly realised that I wanted to do art instead. So I left after five weeks and have been doing all I can to improve as an artist since,” he says.
Sean tells us that he’s focused on improving every day and becoming more thoughtful and knowledgeable on painting and drawing, as he continues to push his artistic skills.
“Painting a large, vista-type environment is something I hadn’t done for quite a while at the time of this image. I was interested to revisit the subject and see how far I could take it.”
“This began with some blobs of murky greens and reds; I knew I wanted that colour palette. Once the general blob palette and atmosphere were in place it was just a process of carving it into the finish.”
“This was just one big experiment on water. I tried a lot of new things and learned how and why water looks the way it does.”
“This started quite differently from where it ended up. Originally the horse troop was a much smaller part of the painting and the focus was on a bunch of lilies floating in the water. Eventually, I decided that the balance wasn’t working and changed the focus completely.”
