Also going to start “Nice and Cool” soon too…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I said I’d do this back in January 2014 in honour of “Trigger” actor Roger Lloyd Pack who died that month. I didn’t get round to it because the image in black and white just wouldn’t have done the scene justice, and I was only brave enough to paint in black and white back then…. Read more »

First Arts & Crafts Market this Saturday…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I am really, really looking forward to finally getting out there and trying to sell my work this Saturday at The Old Police Station, Lark Lane in Liverpool. I’ve wanted to do something like this for ages, I think it’s the “Del Boy” in me! Even if I don’t sell one single print I am… Read more »

“Brown Man’s Fear”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Following on from the last painting, I thought I’d continue with the music video theme. The orchestral intro to this Ian Brown song, coupled with the clever song lyrics, make “Fear” a great song and combined with the video it’s a true work of art. I watched the video on YouTube and took a screen… Read more »

BIG project…”Homesick Bob”

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s coming up to 2 years since I started painting and, since I walked out of my job on Tuesday, I will have plenty of time to work on my biggest piece yet – on 20″ x 24″ canvas, I am replicating a photo of Bob Dylan on a shoot of his “subterranean homesick blues”… Read more »

“Princess In Chains”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I think it was seeing Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) in that golden metal bikini in ‘Star Wars – Return Of The Jedi’ that gave 6 or 7 year old me his first feelings of, ahem, “amorĂ©” shall we say? I chose this piece because I am a little tired of drawing male icons and want… Read more »

2015 begins with “Don Pietro”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

From the absolutely brilliant Italian mafia series “Gomorrah” that my brother introduced me to recently, I can’t wait to start this piece of boss of the family, Don Pietro Savastano. I have chosen this image from Pietro in jail because there was one scene where he incites a riot and subsequently stops it dead with… Read more »

Last one of 2014…”No More Shines”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

With this one, I painted the background first before deciding on what to paint! I just had an urge to do something in colour. The image that jumped out at me was Frank Vincent as “Billy Bats” in ‘Goodfellas’, just about to get into an argument with Tommy before getting “whacked”! (08/12/2014)random greens and blues… Read more »

Started this one the other day, great series!… (25/10/2014) after 6 hours roughly so far… (16/11/2014) about 12 hours estimated so far… (20/11/2014) about 16 hours estimated so far. STARTED FACE AGAIN!… (25/11/2014) lost count now, must be over 20 hours… (06/12/2014) finally completed, between 25-30 hours I’m guessing…
