Description

Original Artwork

“We discovered, during our trip to Uganda, that the buffalo is the favourite animal of many locals. This surprised me, given the plethora of other incredible animals in their country. However, as we travelled across Uganda, encountering many buffalo, it soon became clear why that was the case. As one local put it, ,They always look at you as if you owe them money!’ I think this perfectly sums up their character. They have a swagger and challenge that is unrivalled in the animal kingdom. Here I’ve gone for a strong profile, in an attempt to capture the strong drama inherent in their personality.

I draw with Uni-ball biros on raw linen canvas. To prepare the surface, I lighten the canvas with a very diluted gesso wash. Once this is dry, I draw with the biro, as I would with pencil on paper. After the drawing is complete, it’s varnished (to fix the ink in place) and more white paint is used to add light and finalise the composition. The ink is actually surprisingly versatile, in terms of its colour. If I want a blue tinge to the work I can layer white oil paint over it, or leave the canvas showing through to leave a sepia tone.”

Framing

I make all my own frames for my original artworks, I use mouldings of the finest specification, to ensure they match the quality of the art.

Shipping

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.
