One of 3 original watercolours commissioned by the Cyrenians which were published as charity christmas cards.
Working accross the North East and York the Cyrenians is one of the country's leading and most progressive homlessness charities.
This carefully thought out original watercolour has been painted using over fifty shades of grey to convey the stark bleakness of winter in the North East.
However, the dash of red for my granddaughter's coat as she braves the elements, holding her grandmother's hand, offers both a focal point to the painting and a sense of good things to come.

In 2017 I received a commission to do a very large oil painting of the Angel of the North. The Angel’s wings were coated with 22 carat gold leaf.
My client loves his painting and once he received it we discussed a second commission to go alongside the Angel, this time of the Tyne Bridge.
I've decided to do a smaller preparation painting in oils with gold leaf to make sure that everything is going to work out in terms of colour, composition and where on the painting to apply the gold leaf.
You can watch a short video on YouTube of me painting some of the details of the Tyne Bridge, quayside Painting.
An original watercolour of Newcastle's Tyne Bridges and Quayside with it's famous bridges captured in a swirling snow shower.
The dark moody sky adds extra drama to the composition, the loosness of the washes contrasting with the more considered rendering of the iconic architecture.
An original watercolour of a Northumbrian snow scene. The couple walking into the distance provide a sense of scale to this fluid painting inspired by many a walk I've taken myself in the winter months.
It has been painted on a hand made paper with a limited palette. The big sky provides further interest and drama to the composition.
