Optical Illusion Painting

I recently came across an optical illusion that I thought looked rather good. I thought I would try painting it...
The end result was not bad but it would definitely be something I would like to try again.

Mother's Day Cat

For Mother's Day just gone, I decided to create a small cat ornament.
In one of these pictures, there is a two pence piece next to the cat so you can get an idea of size. It fits rather nicely on the mantlepiece...

The Stone Roses Painting

A while ago, a friend asked me if I could create a painting of The Stone Roses based on the famous black and white photograph of the four lads. He didn't want much changing from the actual photograph apart from wanting it more bright and colourful so I came up with this:

I aimed to give it a more stylised look rather than just trying to re-create a photograph, by blending the colours smoothly but downplaying the details slightly I think I managed to achieve this. However, some of the detail is lost in this photograph and slightly distorts a few areas, mainly Ian Brown's face, so to give you an idea of what his face actually looks like:

And to give you an idea of the size of it, it is balanced on a garden bench so it's pretty big!
