Old Brock

I now tend to paint larger animals, often in bolder strokes, on canvas. I find a quality paper, tho, more suitable for really fine detail.


From my series of 'African Heads'

Silver and Grey


The contrasting of light and dark areas – chiaroscuro – is a favourite technique of mine. Hence the SilverBirch in my own backgarden keeps appearing in my work!

Up Periscope

One of my first splattery canvases, blending the animal in with it's natural habitat.

Sold at NEWA 2012.


Media exercise; let's see just what these acrylics can do... from a photograph by Steve Bloom, with special permission.
