Firstly the picture is me in my prime... I wish I was still that cool. My name is Luke, I live in Bradford on Avon, a small town in the South West of England.
I like to use a pen and watercolours to create my pictures, usually in the dead of night… it’s very important that everyone else is in bed so that I don’t feel I’m missing out on anything!
I use a waterproof pen, cheap A4 printing paper and a light box my dad built for me to create the composition. When I’m happy, I transfer to watercolour paper.
My family have always encouraged me to paint/draw especially my nan. She has given me hints and tips over the years, my favourite being, ‘You have to use the white of the paper to your advantage!’ I like to paint animals and anything that makes people react with an ‘aww.’
Really though, if I’m honest, I paint to impress my nan!
