About
Impressions

Training


Martin has a BA Illustration from Brighton Polytechnic (now Brighton University).

Approach


His approach and the media he uses vary from project to project, but he always begins drawing with a simple pen on paper until he has an idea of what direction the image will take. Martin works in traditional media – oil paints, watercolour, pen and ink – and is also adept at making changes digitally as required. The 2B pencil is his all-time favourite art tool.

Styles


Martin’s inspiration comes from the old masters, and the styles he works in follow on from that. In his portfolio you’ll see fine paintings that look just like Rembrandts, and others that are more like 18th century engravings or 19th century book illustrations. In short, he will come up with a style that suits the brief.
