Time-lapse of Giacomo’s portrait.


This is my first attempt of doing time-lapse of my pastel portraits as I’m working. You can see it on ‘YouTube’ –  http://youtu.be/pGQFvpN5Yd0 I hope you like it.


Self-portrait Sky bound

The obligatory self-portrait was completed in the early hours this morning to meet the deadline for the ‘Sky Arts portrait artist of the year‘ competition (stage 1).

I actually think I look as exhausted as I felt trying to get it finished….phew glad that’s done!

It’s great that portraiture and portrait artists will get some much-needed media, I hope the ‘Sky Arts portrait artist of the year’ will be a great success.

Now that the great Tiger is out of the woods….

Tiger woods

I painted this pastel portrait of Tiger Woods in 2009 just before he fell from grace! I had a batch of limited edition prints made (40)and they were selling quite well. Plus I had promotional postcards printed featuring my “Tiger Woods’ painting as a demonstration of my portraits. No sooner were they off the printing press when the bold (very bold) Tiger was caught offside and his popularity plummeted and so did my “Tiger Woods’ Limited Edition Print sales…!

Well the Tiger is back after his great win at  the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando and hopefully some of his fans will decide to invest in one of my prints (or the original – hanging proudly at here in my studio)…I knew he’d be back!

If you are interested in a Tiger Woods print go to my ‘Limited Edition Prints‘ page. If you are interested in the original framed pastel painting send me an enquiry and we can take it from there.
