“It was actually a long time ago that we visited the Peak District and I’ve been wanting to produce a piece of artwork based on one particular morning for many years. We were staying in a cottage that was out on its own on the moors (needless to say, it was wonderful) and we woke one frosty morning to be greeted with stunning views of frost and fog that were breath-taking. We rushed out before breakfast for a walk to make sure we made the most of it. This was the same trip that inspired “Morning Jewels” so a productive morning.
Un-primed linen canvas, stained with a diluted white oil paint, is used as the base for a biro drawing of the subject matter (up to 6 bic biro pens being used. This piece is the first one where I’ve used only vertical or horizontal marks. I’m very pleased with the effect, so will be trying more, however, only time will tell whether or not this is how I do things from now on! White oil paint is then added to he canvas adding brightness, tone and drama to each work.”
I make all my own frames for my original artworks, I use mouldings, paints and varnishes of the finest specification. The colours are individually selected to match each piece of art, ensuring the best finish possible.
At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.
All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
