A lot of the time a painting evolves as I paint it. I always have a basic composition in mind but I let brush come up with the shapes and I choose colour almost on the spot. Other times I see an image in my head and quickly sketch it out. I normally work in two stages, I first paint the entire canvas in base colours. After it has dried I paint a second layer, adding more and more detail. After I finish a painting, I leave it a day or so before looking at it again, this helps me pick up on areas that need changing.

Ben was born in 1986 and grew up in Barnet north LondonBen's work is fairly diverse ranging from portraits to landscapes in both pencil and oils. I love working with vivid, bright colours to create a unique and modern style. I am a huge Sci-Fi movie fan and I love special effects. There was I time after I finished University when I wanted to be a concept artist for films and video games. I tried my hand at digital painting and got some pretty good results, but paint just has a depth and feel that can’t be beaten. I still get a lot of inspiration from concept artwork and that type of imagery.
