Layers of London

Went to London Bridge to deliver my painting today to the Menier Gallery at the Old Chocolate Factory (mmm) Then wandered the city for a few hours. Here is a photo which sums up why I love wandering London. Just all the layers of history jumbled up together! from Clay pipes, broken pot and animal bones to the tip of The Shard...

sketching in London

Here is a little sketch I completed on a bright and breezy Saturday on the South Bank recently. A few showers came whilst I was sketching, but it was mostly lovely and sunny and I enjoyed my time sitting watching the world come and go!!  There will be a sketching trip up Tower 42, just right of centre in my pic, in watch this space for the view from over there!

another house and garden portrait

Here is another sunny garden recently completed...lots of these commissions keeping me busy at the moment!

Recent commissions - House and Family Portraits

House, family and car in this portrait

House portrait, family, and other interests included

tiny garden visitors
Here are images from a couple of commissions that I completed during the summer. I couldnt show them before they were presents.
Personal interests and hobbies are often included in the paintings, which makes a commission even more personal.
