Watercolour of Mallard duck
Forest Monarchs is large contemporary oil painting of a deer stag and a doe against an abstract autumn forest background. It is painted in thick luxurious paint in warm autumn colours. The deer stand in the centre of the canvas with light behind them and trees in the foreground which they are merging with Ã¢â¬â as deer seem to do in real life. They are fallow deer which you see often in English countryside. This painting was inspired by the deer at Knole Park in Sevenoaks when I was there last October. There is a long shallow valley which runs down the middle of the park which has families of deer in the trees either side that bellow and parade around at that time of year. No matter how many deer I see, I am still captivated by them and have tried to show the magical nature of them. The painting style is messy art nouveau and because it is painted in thick paint, has facets to it that reflect slightly different colours at different times of day. The size is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edged, deep edge canvas, ready to hang and no frame needed.
Great Horned Owl
A great horned owl peers from amongst the white oak foliage - perhaps getting ready to settle down to rest after a night's hunting. My thanks to Jennie Norris for the reference photograph of the owl. Widely distributed in the Americas, the Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) is also known as the tiger owl or hoot owl. It is the second heaviest owl in North America, after the snowy owl, and its well-camouflaged plumage varies considerably across its range. The large, powerful talons are capable of exerting 300 pounds of pressure per square inch. Those tufts of feathers that give rise to the species' name are thought to be used to give visual cues when interacting with other owls. This original pencil drawing by Elaine Jones was made with Faber Castell Polychromos, Caran d'Ache Pablo and Luminance pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat paper. Image measures approximately 37cm x 29cm, unframed.

This is Buster, a loveable rogue painted as a commission from a photograph supplied by his owners, although I did meet Buster in person on a number of occasions. If ever the film "Lady & the Tramp" were to be re-made using real life characters, Buster would be the stand-out favourite to play the leading role. This is painted on a standard stretched canvas and is framed in a contemporary tray frame measuring 68cm x 53cms x 35 mm overall. I am happy to undertake similar commissions - please contact me for information.
Commissioned horse portrait
My thanks to Isabel Morelli for the reference photograph. "Don't ruffle my feathers"! one blue and yellow macaw seems to be saying to the other in this pencil painting by Elaine Jones. The blue and yellow, or blue and gold macaw, ara ararauna, is native to tropical South American woodland and can grow to 30-34 inches and a weight of 2 or 3 pounds. These large, long-lived members of the parrot family are widespread in much of South America and are popular as pets because of their brilliant plumage, intelligence and ability to talk. In the wild they nest in dead palm trees and pairs usually mate for life, often reaching an age of 30-35 years. This original pencil painting is presented in a cream mount/matte ready for framing. (Image size approx. 29cm x 21cm" - external size 35cm x 28cm)
