He Ain't Heavy, He's My Jackdaw
An inquisitive young jackdaw landed on the stone statue in my garden and inspired this drawing. He looked like a rather heavy load for this little boy to carry, hence the title! Derwent Lightfast and Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat board with Pan Pastel background. All materials used are acid free and meet the highest standards of lightfastness. Artist's own reference photograph used. Please note, the watermark does not appear on the artwork. Image measures approximately 9.5" x 11.75" (24cm x 30cm).
My thanks to Ian Unwin for his amazing reference photograph. A magnificent Sumatran tiger charges towards us through the jungle undergrowth in this pastel painting. Sumatran tigers are the smallest of the five tiger subspecies and have narrow stripes. They are critically endangered, with a wild population of as few as 400 individuals. This pastel painting was created using Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board.
This painting of Marilyn Monroe is built up with several layers of acrylic on a box canvas. Firstly blocks of colour and then multiple patterns on top. There is a lot of gold in the background so depending on where the light is coming from the painting changes the way it looks. It is Inspired by the Pop Art movement in general, Klimt's use of gold and patterns, and the bright colours, patterns and squiggles of Ken Done and Keith Haring. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed painting it :) x

Cats In The Tree
Pretty shades of blues and lavender in the evening sky, a family of bunnies sit contented at the bottom of a tree full of contented cats!

It comes complete with its own wooden dispaly easel but its also strung to hang on your wall. P+P in mainland Uk is included in the price
