When I'm painting an animal or person I feel like I'm shaping them into being with light and colour. I prefer to know something of my subject so that I can put character into the painting. I usually work from photographs and often take them myself.
I am happy to come and take preparatory photographs for free within 20 miles of Coventry and for a negotiated fee if further. I like to discuss commissions to make sure the buyer and I are happy with what we are doing and make preparatory sketches and notes to show them. While I paint in any size, I like to put some detail into my work so I prefer to work at a similar size to life, or larger.
Many of my commissions are made to be given as gifts and I have the dubious honour of causing people to weep with joy when they open their present.
