The Forth Rail Bridge

So I was really touched when a friend of mine from years ago (I used to pour her pints… good ones I believe) approached me to commission me to do something for her. There have been few occasions when I have worked with friends, usually that comes afterwards, incidentally this way around there’s slightly different pressure!

She asked me to do the Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland, a cantilever railway bridge, I had a lot of fun doing having never painted it before and because of its architectural intricacies, I wanted to get the perspective right but still will the fluidity and freedom I like to work with when building scenes. I think I did a good job… I believe she agreed too… she can now buy me a pint? no? Enjoy it Sarah!

Everything British… For a client in South Africa…

I was approached by ‘The Painted Door Company’ in South Africa, after a client of theirs had seen my work. She wanted it to be very ‘British, London’ with the classic motifs buildings and London energy, so I had a stab at it… I think it came out quite well… Let’s hope she likes it! It’s being shipped there this week so we will soon find out… have a look…
