Space Madness

Piece description from the artist

This very detailed and colorful piece was painted using inks and gouache on a fine art board. Firstly I would draw out ideas using a large lay out pad then transfer areas I wanted to use on to the board. If I used an airbrush for large areas such as skies I would use loose masking and tighter masking for smaller areas. Sometimes I am asked to provide roughs, sketches and ideas to be checked before I proceed with a finished painting. That was often the case with book covers, record covers etcetera but over the years that requirment has become less and less.

About Gerald Newton

Newport, United Kingdom

In childhood, at home, school or art college Gerald excelled in art and related subjects. His fascination with the natural world and the universe began in those early days and has continued ever since. Before becoming a full time freelance artist he gained experience in printing and publishing and for a few years worked as a poster, graphic artist. But he always found time to take on private commissions, exhibit, and develop his painting skills and style. After another two years at art college in the early 1990's Gerald became a freelance artist, illustrator, and designer and worked for a variety of clients in publishing, marketing, and the music industry. Etcetera. Gerald is proud of everything he has done but still feels a great sense of achievement when he sees his work published and printed on a book cover, a record cover, a jigsaw puzzle Etcetera. Today Gerald combines his traditional drawing, painting, and digital skills to produce his colorful and detailed scenes. Bringing to life his visions of worlds he imagines.
