Has there ever been a time when you have loved somebody who doesn't even know you exist? Sometimes that love seems so out of reach. It is like shooting for the moon. But every now and then if you are lucky, that love becomes accessible. Once you have it in your grasp you never let it go. This is why the title is called 'Hold Onto Love'



BACKGROUND
After I have chosen the images I am going to paint, I start by painting the backgrounds. This can take up to about four or five layers of building up and getting the light and shadows right. Then after this has dried, I paint in my background images faintly in white or grey as these should not dominate the page.
As I am going through these stages I am still determining the positions of the main characters and may change direction at any time. Eventually after great thought I am ready to paint in my main character. I block in this with white paint sketching the lines faintly first with white/grey paint as this would be easier to remove if I make a mistake. Eventually when the character is blocked in, I paint in the form in monochrome greys before applying colour to the image. When the image is coloured in, then I intensify the shadows and the highlights very carefully.
