Gwarllwyneidos - revisited
The old stone barn in the farmyard of Gwarllwyneidos - nature is taking over. The grass is like a sea of greenery lapping at it's feet and the sky can be glimpsed through the roof where slates have given up the ghost and slid into the green sea below. I think I am it's only visitor. Watercolour and ink in an ivory mount
Leopard On The Rocks
This was my first lockdown painting which was created in a very confined space, but was well worth the effort in recreating the calculating look from this elegant and powerful animal. Interpreted from a wonderful photo, this exposes her beautiful, detailed markings as she chills on the rocks in the shade from the sun. Painted in oils on boxed canvas so no need to frame.
Kurt Cobain of Nirvana
Contemporary painting of a little black bird sitting amongst flowers and plants. The fresh yellows really 'pop' out of the canvas set against graduations of grey foliage. This painting would suit any home and is ready for immediate hanging with no need for framing. It has been finished with a protective satin varnish.
Blue Tit on Ivy Leaves
An adorable little blue tit perched on trailing ivy leaves. My thanks to Albert Horsborough for kind permission to use his wonderful reference photo. The blue tit (cyanistes caeruleus) is a much-loved garden and woodland bird, widespread in the UK and much of Europe, entertaining us with its agility at our back yard bird feeders. Like the chickadee, it is part of the paridae family. 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.
