I have just completed a COMMISSION (Jan 20) for a painting of the Great Western Railway locomotive "City of Truro" which on the 9th May 1904 was the first vehicle of any kind to pass the 100m.p.h. barrier, whilst hauling the Ocean Mails express from London to Plymouth.
Recently finished artwork (Dec 2019) is a bit of a departure from my recent work. I have gone back after a long time to doing an equestrian based picture. This time it is of racehorses at Thirsk Racecourse in North Yorkshire, England. The power and magnificence of these wonderful animals at full speed heading for the finish line was a joy to behold. Now for sale at £375. or nearest offer. (mounted size is 50 x 40cms)
Finally finished the watercolour painting of the 2 Maidstone Corporation PD2A's yesterday evening (20th Nov 2019).

Painting (without mount) measures 42 x 30 cms and is up for sale. Open to sensible offers.

The first four watercolours in a series of doorways from around the world.
I love Art Deco in particular so I started this series with two I came across in Ostend, Belgium.
The next two doorways are from Edinburgh (left) and Thaxted (right). The Thaxted house was the residence of the famous composer Gustav Holst for several years, which is why there is a Blue Plaque on the wall.
