Welcome to the artwork and paintings of artist Martin Davey.
Martin creates visual work in a number of styles and media. On this site one can see Martin’s illustration work, which is digitally painted in a traditional methods in photoshop. The subjects range from imaginative cartoon and animal subjects, whimsical scenes and horror and scifi.
To create these works a graphic drawing tablet is used throughout the painting of these images, starting from a blank, electronic canvas, to drawing the subject to finally applying colour and ‘painting’ the drawing, all on a computer.
But Martin does not only use computers and software for his artwork, for in addition he paints directly on to a canvas, using traditional oil or acrylic paints. The subjects are different to his digital paintings in that he pick every day scenes to paint, using animals, transport and landscapes as his subjects, captured realistically.
Martin likes all of his artwork and paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
