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.
Springtime on the Malvern Hills
Original watercolour on Two Rivers handmade 100% Rag paper.Painted from the foothills of the Herefordshire Beacon ( British Camp ),looking towards the Worcestershire Beacon and Colwall Green.This painting featured in The Leisure Painter Magazine ( Sept 2018)in different stages from the actual drawing to the completed work.
Tower Bridge at Twilight
An impressionist-style waterclour of Tower Bridge and the London skyline at twilight with a steam barge and it's smokey steam setting the scene to the right of the foreground. Painted in just 3 colours: raw sienna, light red and french ultramarine. This was commissioned. I'm currently undertaking a similar painting for a client using acrylic on canvas and I'm happy to take similar commissions in waterclour or acrylic.
