La Dolce Piazza

This latest private commission came from A lovely lady (and now friend) who bought 2 of the pieces that I exhibited at the Gallery Upstairs, she approached me to do a third of the building that she owns and of the restaurant that is run by Gamal and Maria. La Dolce Piazza serves delicious italian cuisine, having eaten there numerous times now (thanks Barbara/ Maria/ Gamal). So if you are based in Warwickshire or just in the area you should definitely go there and eat!

I think I have at least made it loo welcoming from the outside!

Carlowrie Castle

A few weeks ago I embarked on a commission for a corporate client based in Scotland, the castle that I painted ‘Carlowrie Castle’ will hold events for all walks of life so the client asked me to make sure it was a cracker…The painting will hang pride of place above the fire place in the main hall so…I did my best!

I went back to make a mess in my parents house in Warwickshire (convenient) and use the space whilst they were away, in conjunction with sunshine and a glass of wine I had a good 2 days painting in order to create this private commission.

As an add on for clients, I can produce a stop motion video (for those of you who don’t know, basically you attach what can be best described as a remote to the camera and it takes a photo every -in this case- 15 seconds… which are then compiled together to condense down many hours of painting to a 3 minute video). The video usually adds another dimension to the project and in this case a piece of marketing material for the castle. Unfortunately Youtube has cut some of the angles off or out… so the link below is a fair but no quite as good as the original version… but it gives you a feel for the animation!
