Description

Original Artwork

“This piece was inspired by a roadside viewing of a beautiful little bird, the grey kestrel. We were driving along the back roads of Uganda and as soon as I saw this wonderful little bird of prey perched on a succulent, known as the candelabra tree, I immediately thought it would look fantastic on a wall.

There are many reasons I create art, and one of the simplest of those is that it will just look great. Nature is extremely complex and is usually beautiful, so this was one of those times I got huge amounts of pleasure simply trying to capture that beauty in a pure, simple way.

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.
