Evening stroll

My oil on paper painting of 'Evening stroll' is of no particular place, just something I wanted to do.

Bords De La Seine à Argen

My version of the painting by Édouard Manet called Bords De La Seine à Argen

Lady in the Straw Hat. Oil on 220gsm A3 paper.
My interpretation of the painting finished in 1910 of 'Lady in Yellow Straw Hat' by Alexej Georgewitsch von Jawlensky (13 March 1864 – 15 March 1941) a Russian expressionist painter active in Germany. I liked the bold lines and simple colours used, almost a childlike simplicity. I hope you agree e that I have captured that simplicity.

Societa Operaia

This is not an opera house, but a club where local men play cards and talk politics throughout the day - and most of the night. The trompe l'oeil in the club creates a stunning backdrop to the card shuffling.

The original artwork on the walls is by Andrea Pozzo called The trompe l'oeil. Born in Trento, 30th November 1642; died in Vienna, 31st August 1709.

The Reluctant Golfer. Oil on board 20” x 16” (50.8 x 40.64 centimetres)
The suggestion for this painting comes from a statue perched behind the seats in the Guest House Inn, Union Street, Southport. (Named Best Cask Ale pub in national awards run by Star Pubs & Bars)
Painted on the backing board from a glass fronted wooden frame, the type you buy to frame large family photographs. Carefully removing the backing board and glass, (placing the glass in a safe place as this is no longer required) I covered the backboard with several coats of Gesso before starting to paint using Winsors & Newton oils.
