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.
Contemporary Chocolate Squares
Warm chocolates and browns make up this modern and contemporary painting. The graduated browns of the four panels set off the raised textured centre sections which have been built up in multi-coloured layers to create embossed swirls of colour and depth. You can see coffee and mocha ripples in the rich chocolatey colours. This is an attractive and fresh painting that would compliment most colour schemes. This painting is completely flexible - the individual squares can be hung in a line, in a square, close together or far apart, straight or from the corners diagonally - have a play! These paintings have been finished with a protective satin varnish.
Waterlilies (after Monet (2014)
This is the first of my Monet versions. I painted it because an artist friend of mine was convinced that not only could I paint them, but also sell them on line. This idea never came to fruition, but because I enjoyed painting versions of Monet's originals I painted many more, but keep them for myself, but as I have Mentioned before I will gladly paint another if you want.
Atmospheric scene with lots of textured detail.I have used dark silver metallic paint on the trees that catches the light when it is on the wall.I have used lots of bold colour for the leaves and foliage. Part of my popular Birches series. Painted in high quality acrylic paint on a box canvas. I have painted all of the sides so it does not require a frame. It has been varnished to protect it. reduced by Â£55
Contemporary sailing boat. Clean white horses stand out against the blue, green and turquoise waves as the cutter runs ahead of the wind. These boats were used in the original Americas Cup races and I love the beauty of them under full sail. The paint has been applied in layers to add a textured look and feel to this modern and contemporary painting. The painting continues round the edges of the canvas frame so that it is ready for immediate hanging. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish. This painting is on a standard edge canvas.
A relaxing Tuscan scene in purple and brown vibrant colours. This painting will look stunning in any room and add an interesting focal point. The painting continues round the edges of the frame so it is ready to hang with no need for framing. This creates a very simple but effective style. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish. This painting is on a standard edge canvas.
Impression sunrise (after Monet) (2018)
Yet another Monet version. This painting gave the Impressionists their name. The painting was exhibited by Monet at the Impressionist's(then called the "society of anonymous artists") first exhibition in 1874 in Paris. The painting was ridiculed by art critic Louis Leroy as he joked about it's titled by saying that he was not "impressed" by it and that he had seen more finish in wallpaper in it's embryonic state. Again I will paint it again for you if you should so wish.
A calming sunset lakeland scene with sailing boats and distant hills. The relaxing colours in this painting will complement most colour schemes and add an interesting focal point to any room. The painting continues round the edges of the frame so it is ready to hang with no need for framing. This creates a very simple but effective style. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish. This painting is on a standard edge canvas.
The Mill Pond and Malt Shovel 2011
This is one of my many paintings of the Mill Pond in Burley in Wharfedale. The direction of the view is south and the painting also includes the rear of the Malt Shovel. The ivy on the rear of the building was removed when it was turned into apartments and the bridge in between it and the pond has a small opening at it's base (middle of the bridge)to allow water in from the local beck to replace the water flowing out of the pond that drove the old mill that has now been turned into a house.
Silver Birches lll
Part of my very popular Birches series of paintings. I have used a subtle metallic silver paint for the birches in this picture. It catches the light beautifully. The painting continues around all of the sides of the painting and it does not need framing. I have used a high quality chunky canvas that measures 80cm x 30cm and it has been strung ready to hang and varnished to protect it.
