A Day Away
This is No.18 in my `Northern Art` Collection...all the other 17 have been sold, and they seem to becoming quite a collectable item. They are all the same size, just a tactile 14" x 10" x half an inch thick. Painted on my own HANDMADE canvas boards. Sides are also painted so ready to hang, no frame required. Here the grandparents have taken the nippers away for a day out, from the smog, and fog of the sooty town. These paintings all have the same theme of a bygone era of the northern mill towns.
St Govan's Chapel, Pembrokeshire
The Calf Rock afternoon in early Autumn (2015
Again another painting of the Calf Rock viewed again from the base of the larger Cow Rock. In the distance is the Cow and Calf Inn where many of the tourists to Ilkey Moor stay during their visit. I used a bit of what they call "artistic license" and did not include in the painting the large car park which is situated between the inn and the rock. I thought it didn't "fit" and was unpainterly.
This is No.14 in my `Northern Art` collection, they are all the same size just..14"x10"x half inch thick, No frame required as I also paint the edges. Painted on my own HANDMADE canvas boards. The theme`s for all of these is the sooty streets of the bygone era northern mill towns. It looks like a Saturday night here, and lots of people are out and about.
Portrait of Gail
This is a portrait of my friend Gail which she commissioned me to paint for her. It stands proudly on the a wall in her house and is much admired by her family. I have included it in this gallery as I feel it to be a good example (along with the other two) of my technique in painting portraits. If you would like to commission me to paint a portrait please be advised that it will be done in the same manner (using prime colours and white only) as this one and the other two in this gallery.
