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.
Last light of the day
This is from a photograph of Reculver Towers on the North Kent Coast, taken just before the light of the Sun faded. Standing in the centre of these ruins, I always get a real sense of its past and those who left their souls here. The last picture shows the Towers when they were once part of the medieval church of St Mary. Well worth a visit!
F4 Phantom Landing
Original unframed pastel painting by Elaine Jones, 19.5" x 13.5" (50cm x 35cm) on Pastelmat board. My thanks to Ian Murdoch for the amazing reference photograph. (Please note watermarks do not appear on original painting or prints.) A Phantom returns to base at Lossiemouth in Scotland, its yellow brake chute streaming behind.
