A Gloucester Black Spot Pig

A Gloucester Black Spot Pig

This painting is of a Gloucester Black Spot Pig, an old English breed noted for its intelligence. I got it to come and see me by rattling the lid of the dustbin that held it's food. I think the expression on it's face shows it's disappointment. 'No food, just another artist wanting to paint me ...'

Cocoa on Brighton Beach

Cocoa on Brighton Beach

Cocoa the dachshund puppy, sitting expectantly on Brighton Beach. 'As the warm sun shined he rested in the shade, sand on his nose as he sniffed the sea breeze and watched quietly the people passing by.'

I started the painting as I usually do with oils, by painting in earth colors, burnt umber and raw umber, then adding white to emphasise the highlights. After that I added various glazes to produce the the fineness and color of Cocoa's fur. Sold to a private collector in Rome.

Best of Pals - Cocoa and Poppy

Best of Pals - Cocoa and Poppy

This is a painting of Cocoa and Poppy, the pets of a friend of ours. They are both young puppies full of life and interested in everything. I hope I have conveyed their keenness and excitement in their portrait. I am particularly pleased with the bright colours, sometime paintings just work out the way you want them to!

Buddy - the Comfy Cat

Buddy - the Comfy Cat

This is our cat, Buddy, captured at the moment he realises he has been caught sitting on the best settee.
I think it catches his expression well as he wonders whether I am going to get him to leave or not.
I was pleased with the painting of his fur and also the cushions on the settee. The original painting was painted in earth colours, browns and then white. The colours for the settee and Buddy's fur, were then added as a series of glazes afterwards. Quite a laborious process but worth it.
