At rest on the Thames London

I have always wanted to paint  Thames barges. My dear friends Peter and Sue who are globe trotters provided me with a photo from a trip to London.

I had to try to interpret it my way. I decided to use Watercolour paper Arches so good for landscape. I knew that the large sky would take the colours and would merge them without killing the luminosity.

Prints and cards are available at:

New Iphone Ipod design "Hidden"

To my delight, all my Ipod and Iphone designs on Redbubble are very popular.
They are produced for Apple products. Once in a while, Apple acquires one of the designs.
So this week I have decided to add one more design that I have just finish and created.

Hythe Kent Marine Parade

Today was a special day.
I had sent the commissioned painting by post to a client who was going to give it as a present.

They were very happy with it and both the persons who had ordered the work and the recipient wanted to meet me.

They came to my home/studio and I was delighted to see them. It made the work on this painting so much more special.

Below is the commission
