My name is Benjamin. Enjoying numerous media, styles, and themes, I use a variety of traditional drawing & painting techniques and digital media to create a range of artworks, including nudes & figures, portraits, landscapes, animals, and conceptual paintings.
The materials involved in oil and acrylic painting used to give me tremendous headaches. Living in Beijing for some years (studying tattooing, but that's another story), the convenience of a small digital drawing tablet became very tempting (one brush, one canvas, no paints, no cleaning!), and with the subsequent lack of headaches I haven’t much looked back. Most of my work is now hand-drawn in a computer, in a similar way that one paints with oils, and I usually to aim to give my work a traditionally painted feel, exploring the major academic components of traditional painting (form, light, composition, brushwork, etc) while also adventuring into an array of new techniques that are offered digitally. I also work with charcoal, pencil, and other traditional media when they fit the bill for a particular piece.
Fine art prints and greeting cards featuring my paintings are available in my online shop. You can also check out the Hill family print shop - including paintings by my father and grandfather - at cassyput.co.uk!
