Nature Unleashed is a very large oil painting on canvas of an exuberant Sussex wildflower meadow featuring the South Downs, swallows and poppies. It is 72x48x1.5 inches. The style is semi-abstract and art nouveau and is very vibrant and colourful. It was inspired by walks taken in fields and woodlands around the South Downs in summer when the wildflowers are at their best and the poppies, in particular, stand out against the green grass and reeds. The scene shows an abundance of flowers in the foreground and trees and fields leading off into the distance behind them. Two barn swallows swoop over the flowers and you can see the patterns their motion makes. Swallows are birds you see often in Sussex and they are very much woven into the landscape of summer. The painting was made from memory using reference phots to add small details here and there. Memory painting tends to reflect how I felt about a place I have been to rather than ârealisticâ details as such and I like this way of working. What I feel about an English Sussex summer is that it is beautiful and wild and I am happy I caught this feeling and in such a large canvas! The edges are dark green and it is ready to hang, no frame needed
A New Summers Day
This large 36in x 36in deep edge canvas will brighten any room it hangs in. A New Summers Day is my signature painting ,but has only been painted in this size once before. Created using high quality oil paints, it has been a long time in the making due to my ill health..and could be the only one I paint for a long time. Lots of lovely textures abound in the painting. I have used a knife to create the waves--this gives a lovely textured finish, and the thick paint used to do the poppies adds more detail that stands out from the canvas.. There is a very subtle twinkle on the sea as the light catches it.. The painting continues around all of the sides and it does not require a frame.. P+P in mainland UK is included in price but personal delivery and hanging is possible, please contact me for details. NOW SOLD
Ben the Foxhound
This is a commissioned painting of a retired foxhound - now a family pet. It is painted on a standard stretched canvas and presented in a contemporary simple tray frame measuring 68cm x 53cm x 35mm overall. It was painted from a photograph supplied by his owner. I am happy to accept other commissions for this type of work. Please contact me for further information.
This is one of my last paintings created in my studio, at the end of my garden. I wanted to capture the face of this beautiful cat, and the stunning colours. It took me time doing this piece as I repeatedly came back changing and adding more, it's one of those paintings that gave me great satisfaction in watching it grow. This is painted with oils on boxed canvas so no need to frame, ready to hang.

The Boat House, Trevarno
The Boathouse on the lake in Trevarno Garden, Cornwall. A very eerie atmosphere around the lake, just the sound of the water lapping against the lakes edge. Even more eerie within the boathouse - almost ghostly. Oil on canvas with distressed pine frame. The dimensions include the frame.
