Below are some examples of my commissions

Just the Two of Us

Commission in sepia ink and watercolour

This painting was commissioned as a wedding present for a couple who loved travelling and was created using my usual technique of sepia pen and watercolour using a favourite photograph that was taken of the couple whilst on holiday in Mexico.

The Old Fire Engine

Commission in sepia ink and watercolour

This was commissioned by someone who loved vintage vehicles. This fire engine used to be at Holkham Hall in Norfolk, but is now long gone.  Although the photograph showed the vehicle on concrete I placed it in a more rural setting with chickens using it as a perch.

Hedgehog and Bee

Commission in sepia ink and watercolour

This was commissioned by a gentleman for his wife’s birthday via a gallery. His wife collected anything to do with hedgehogs and he thought it would be a lovely addition to their home.  This illustrative  painting shows an inquisitive hedgehog amongst the undergrowth and flowers with a little bee on a daisy looking back at him. My customer’s wife was delighted with her unique gift. 

 Norfolk Kingfisher

Commission in sepia ink and watercolour

This was commissioned by a local gallery for a customer who wanted a unique painting of a kingfisher. I created this illustrative painting of a perky little kingfisher sitting in front of the bulrushes against a peaceful background of The Norfolk Broads.

Looking Out to Sea

Commission in mixed media

This painting was commissioned by a lady who wanted an interpretation in black and white of a favourite photo of her husband and his friend when they were much younger looking out to sea from a windy cliff top.  This time I used a mixed media technique of black ink pen, watercolour and acrylic paint.
