It’s going to be hard to try and not be so much of a “perfectionist” but I successfully managed it with my “Pete N Puss” painting last time, and that’s my goal – to capture a great likeness but to also keep the pieces looking less photographic and more “painty”. On a few occasions at… Read more »

After a sublime performance by Liverpool against Villarreal in the Europa League semi final second leg, reaching their second final of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s celebration at the end, including orchestrating roars from each section of the crowd, was a magical moment. This painting I am going to do, on a small 12×9″ canvas, is… Read more »
