Milan, London, New York and Marina Del Ray CA, USA…

I was very pleased to be approached by my Italian client again this time a special commission for his girlfriend, let’s hope she likes it! It was a montage of many places which was fun to piece fluidly together, also the first client commission in my new space – the light was good and I think I captured it well. Think Milan, New York, London and Marina Del Rey, California… all in one…

Hattie…

It’s been a while since I posted any of the ‘face a day/ week’ sketches I have been doing… but thought I’d post this of my cousin, as she so very kindly put me up in Manchester/ let me tag along to her birthday celebrations and shared her friends with me at the Gig I went to… Very kind, (can’t say she had much choice in the matter… but hey what are family for if only to get free stuff :P).

 

Many thanks again… It’t just such a shame you had to duck out so early on in the evening? hmmm peaked a little early did we Hatbat?X

Take a look…

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!

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…

750 Park Avenue, Manhattan, New York City…

So I was approached by a lovely and interesting client, who I’ve worked with before to recreate where her husband grew up,  750 Park Avenue New York. She gave me the postcode and sent me to google maps so I created a composition drawing to get the right perspective – introduced the appropriate characters of the area -business men, cyclists, ladies with little dogs – and this combined with my numerous trips to New York for both work and pleasure, to quote my client meant that ‘I had captured exactly how it is over there!’. Have a butchers…

The Show. The Guards, Primrose Hill, Chelsea, Notting Hill Carnival and Covent Garden.

So last week I had a collaborative pop up show with Milly McCallum, and it went really well! I sold work and took private commissions, so I’m pleased as punch. The work is still available to be seen – 265 King’s Road along with other sorts of work too this week, if you are in the area pop in!

I had a lot of fun with this work as I played with folding the paper to create a 3d element, texture and therefore aura of lots of people, as I wanted these pieces to be based around figures, crowds and people. We have ‘Change of the Guards’, The Sunbathers on Primrose Hill’ ‘Notting Hill Carnival’ ‘Jose’s Boys – Stamford Bridge’ and ‘The Jugglers in Covent Garden’. They were then framed in really stylish box frames with conservation glass and so I was really pleased with the quality and finish to my babies! Take a look!

‘Mumbai’ Architects Digest… Private Commission

So I created and shipped a private commission to Mumbai last week, from a client I gained via the show I did in NYC. They sent me through very detailed photos and an outline of exactly what they wanted – i.e. the view from their apartment in Mumbai ‘The Queen’s Necklace’ making prominent the CSR Train station, Gateway to India, Taj Mahal hotel and Oberoi. The apartment is being photographed and featured in Architects Digest, I was asked to create a focal landscape piece to hang in their main living space of the apartment, have a look!
