Head of a Capri Girl

An oil painting study of John Singer Sargent's "Head of a Capri Girl" on board. John Singer Sargent is one of my favourite artists. I regularly make observational studies of his portraits, usually quick charcoal pencil drawings in my Moleskine sketchbooks. 

Sometimes though, I will take time to make a more considered study in oils.

Also available as a print, either on canvas or paper. Telephone 01661 871 800 for details.

Lindisfarne Priory, Holy Island

Holy Island is an unique place. The fact that it is cut off from the mainland at high tide adds to its attraction.

Several years ago I was commissioned by a gentleman to do a watercolour painting of Lindisfarne Priory as it held special memories for him.

This is only the second time I've painted the Priory. It's a small watercolour study capturing the ancient ruins of Lindisfarne Priory bathed in summer evening sunlight, painted on hand made paper.

Morning Eye Christmas Cards

The early morning light breaking through the clouds provided the perfect backdrop for this painting reproduced as Christmas Cards.
