I only undertake a limited number of commissions each year. Here is a selection of my more recent ones to give you an idea, showing the likeness and presence that I can achieve.
North England Mule Sheep Portrait
This beautiful sheep just grows out of the grey background of the linen canvas.
Coloured pencil on Canson pastel paper. Wonderful subtleties of colour and detail. Such presence.
It's all in the eyes. Polychromos coloured pencil on canson pastel paper really capture the character of this lovely dog.
Black Labrador portrait
Acrylic paint on grey linen deep canvas. Grey works a wonderful mid-tone for this much loved companion.
Palomino Pony portrait
Acrylic paint on canvas. A challenge as Palominos change colour during the year. Such an intelligent gaze from this Welsh pony.
Sport Horse portrait
Acrylic paint in a watercolour style on coloured board. Many washes create the depth in the bay colouring. Such a wonderful kind expression.
Acrylic paint on grey linen canvas. Grey is a good mid-tone enabling this amazing horse to grow out of the canvas in this private project.
