started painting animals in January 2017 and selling online in shops and in galleries has enable me to dedicate more time to doing what I love.
I am actually a photographer (which I also love) and have been painting in my spare time, which I no longer seem to have much of.
Animals in general and in particular Brithish animals are my biggest inspiration but other iconic and exotic creatures often capture my imagination.
I paint all of my pictures using Schmincke watercolours onto 600gram Hahnemühle Leonardo Water Colour Paper. Once they are dry I use my studio (handy being a photographer for this bit) to photograph them and produce a master file from which all subsequent prints are produced. The skills and equipment I have acquired as a commercial photographer have transferred very well to producing very high quality prints of my paintings.
I use the latest professional Epson printer, the epson Surecolor P5000 and the result are stunning. The Epson HDX ink means that colour accuracy, vibrance and permanence are the very best available. Combining the latest in print technology and the traditional texture and weight of a Giclée watercolour paper means my prints are intended to last for generations and have the look and feel of an original watercolour painting.
Every limited edition print is produced entirely by me, from the original painting to the photographing, printing and packaging. To help easy the load my wife looks after dispatch.
