A past commission of a painting I did which typifies the English country house. Set in a dry late summer, note the sunburnt banks in front of the house and the field where the owners horses grazie happily in the paddock.
As I don’t paint to flatter and try to paint what I see, hence the dryness and sunburnt look of the grounds on this hazy late summer day.

These Hereford bulls are magnificent animals and make great paintings. I had this particular painting hanging in my gallery window along with a painting of a head study which I may post at a later date. They were hanging in the window for less than a week, a farmer who happened to be passing by after a call at a cattle market called into the gallery and purchased them both. Lucky for me that they were hanging in the right place at the right time.

I posted this painting of Jaffy to Canada just before Christmas a gift to the clients Mother and received this message recently;
My mom was delighted with the picture. The detail is amazing, and his expression which is so key to a wire fox terrier is perfect. The colour is spot on, including the black shading around his ears. It’s wonderful how the coat texture is so clear, including the waves on his beard, and even the little wispy bits. My mom declared it to be the “best Christmas gift ever”! Oh…..one other thing, Jaffy’s registered name is Brocolitia Make Me Proud. He was actually born with in England and exported to Canada at 6 months.
Thank you so much!

Scenes like this are seldom seen and I was extremely fortunate to find such a chance and put it to canvas. I came upon this scene whilst out walking at a place called Rodney’s Pillar. Rodney’s Pillar is set on a hilltop in Montgomeryshire about a mile from the boundary with Shropshire. The hilltop rises to 900 ft and at the top give spectacular 360 degree views across Shropshire, Cheshire and Wales. You can follow a path, open to the public, which takes you through woods on both sides and leads up to the hilltop.
There is also pheasant shooting during the season and from October to January access is closed to the public on a shoot day. The woodsman in the painting was having a lunch break prior to which he had been working his blue roan, Dutch Draft mare, which was flattening bracken in the woods.

In between oil paintings I have decided to revive my drawing skills. Indolence soon sets in and one forgets the lessons that can be revived in as much as it reminds one of the importance of light and shade and takes you briefly away from the complexities of using colour.
A commissioned painting (SELECT PAST WORKS, https://wp.me/p2Ijh6-1wU) of Theodor, a dark bay horse. I painted Theodor some time ago for Brian Garbett who has become a close friend. Brian who has since retired was managing director and owner of Ramases Associates Ltd, a very successful business reinstating people’s lives and property after major disasters.Theodor belonged to Brian’s wife Louise, a lovely woman, who sadly passed away. Along with Theodor I have painted Brian and Louis’s house, which I have recently posted on Linkedin and the lake which Brian excavated out of land adjacent to the house ( https://wp.me/s2Ijh6-1zd)

This is my latest animal painting of a pollard Hereford Bull.
Hereford cattle, especially bulls make great paintings. I saw this magnificent beast relaxing in a field whilst out walking in Cumbria and immediately thought it would make for a great painting.
I painted this great beast sometime after back in my studio, I like the result and hope that you do to.
