It should have been a life painting session but the model became ill so we decided to do the job ourselves. Three of us took a turn each for forty minutes. Above is my painting of Tony Robinson, oil on oil paper 38cm x 40cm, and below is Tony Robinson's painting of me, oil on panel 36cm x 28cm
What a great Face! My first time painting a black person which presented a whole new set of challenges but very rewarding. Oil on Canvas 45cm x 60cm (18"x 24") Post published by Tomas King 18th - 12 - 2015
It should have been a life painting session but because of a mix-up the model failed to appear so Selina, one of our regular painters, decided she would sit to have her portrait painted. She is a very colourful lady in all respects so it was a joy to paint her. The image is oil on unprimed canvas-board 40cm x 40cm (16"x 16"). Post published by Tomas King 16 - 12 - 2015

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'.
