"THREE GENERATIONS "
Family pets throughout the years were captured on one canvas to produce this portrait ( Individual photos of each dog were used ).

"MISCHIEF"
This little girls Grandmother snapped this shot
as she had pulled the top off her lolly & was
quickly stuffing it into her mouth whilst looking
round to see if she had been caught. A wonderful
little character with challenging curly locks.
   
"FATHER & SON"

Again, this was painted from several photographs taken by myself. It actually felt like painting the same person twice, they shared so many facial details.

 

   
"SURPRISE!"
This cute little lady was photographed dressed
as a fairy & the portrait captures the innocent
suprise on her face.
   
"THE BRIDESMAID"
This was a particularly beautiful portrait to
paint. She had a lovely face which was
enhanced further by the beautiful bouquet
of flowers in the foreground.

The Landlady of the Nags Head requested this portrait of the pub as it is now, after seeing a limited edition I had painted, showing the Nags Head several years ago. A nice pub, with good food and friendly bar staff.
   
"REBEL"
Unfortunately - has passed away & the portrait
was requested as a happy reminder of the
years spent together.
   
"FIRST DANCE "
The brides mother snapped this romantic shot
& was overwhelmed with the way the portrait
had captured the expression of love & bliss
on the brides face.
   
"MAGIC MOMENT "

"PEACE TREATY!"
The brothers managed to sit quietly together
for a school photo which was used to produce
this portrait in stronger pastel colours. The
glasses worn by one son for the photo, were
omitted at the request of Mum,
so his features could be clearly seen.
