CHEEKY CHAPPY - SOLD

This pastel painting of a robin shows the cheeky nature of this delightful bird as it watches what is going on. My wife took the original photograph and I gave it a 3D effect, highlighting the contrast between the bright colours of the robin and the stark grey/brown of the branches. The dappling of the sunlight adds an extra dimension. 

CHIPPIE ( GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER ) - SOLD

Having already sold two woodpeckers previously I completed this one for my 2016 open house during Herefordshire Art Week and sold it to a couple for their daughter-in-law's birthday.....

This was my first kingfisher - these are stunning birds and that blue was a delight to recreate using a reference photo purchased from Adobe Stock photos......It sold during my 2016 open house during H-art week.... 

MAIDEN VOYAGE - SOLD

This delightful duckling was created using a photograph by Chris Allsebrook, donated for use to the facebook group Photos for Artists. It was the first time I had used pastelmat pastel paper and it was a challenge but I was happy with the end result. It sold during my 2015 open house during H-art week.....
