This is Jim Harker our artist for La Pashe he is busy in this photograph working on the new images for Flippin' Men, we have a brain storming session when starting a new project and lots of laughing and enthusiasm thinking up new images and ideas often changing them along the way until we are completely happy.
I love to watch Jim work and to be honest it is rather magical thinking of images and watching them come to fully blown art work, Jim has a style which I love.
He once told me never to wash the paint palette as you may make a new colour from colours you have already blended I'm a bit hopeless on this front as I don't like to get my trays dirty and tend to wipe them clean as I'm going but when I see Jim painting and blending an array of colours I understand fully that I'm doing it wrong.
Below is a few palettes that Jim has been using whilst working on the Flippin' Men. You can see just how many colours he works with.
