Commission from a photograph 2015. This dog is a working dog and family pet.
Painting of my niece from a photograph. Shortly after this photo was taken we accidentally fell in the river when I hilariously tried to carry her over it.
A fellow member of Priory Arts was doing a painting of Whitby Abbey as part of a project on Dracula. Coincidently I was drawing this picture, which fit in with the project as in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula came ashore in the guise of a black dog. This made me draw the eyes a bit more fierce looking than I would have done otherwise.
My cat Socks, sleeping. Socks likes most cat stuff, tuna, sleeping, having his chin scrtiched. He categorically does not like his stomach stroking. This picture captures his lovely tummy fur which is all soft and silky and oh so tempting.
I quite like the melancholdy mood of this picture. It captures how Socks feels when it's raining.
This painting won the public's choice prize in Priory Art Society's Spring Exhibition 2014 and featured in Leisure Painter Magazine.
