Whilst settled in Droitwich Spa for the winter I have been doing quite a lot of painting and sketching. Earlier last year when we were travelling near Rugby we met a boating couple who asked me to paint their dog. She's a lovely affectionate rescue dog, Tasha. They didn't have any decent photos of her so I snapped this one just as it was starting to rain and Tasha was going back inside their boat. Unfortunately we had to travel on and didn't see them again, but if we ever do I'll give them this painting which I've recently finished. Oil on canvas 12" x 15"
I live and work from a narrowboat on the beautiful Oxford canal. I'm a part-time graphic designer and also paint portraits of pets to commission. This blog is to show the progress of paintings I do and also to show other other forays into sketching and painting as I learn and progress. Because hopefully we never stop learning and progressing!
