Now if you know me you’ll know I’m no football fan and I have no idea of the rules. I’ve never watched a game in my life but I’ve got the fever! I am now watching the England team and hoping for them the bring the cup home! I was born in 1966 when it last came home so maybe its appropriate for me to start watching.
I’ve decided that if England bring home the cup I’ll do a full oil painting. In the meantime her are some sketches from the England/Tunisia game and the England /Sweden Game.
These re not on my website but are available for sale. Email me for details email@example.com

The race has come and gone but these are some of my highlights of the race.
Harry Tanfield wins stage 1 (soft pastels)
Stage 2 Winning on a Hilltop. (oil on paper)
Stage 3. Apparently 2.6 million people came out to watch in glorious weather
The man who rode over 100km on his own. Stage 4
Stage winner Stephane Rossetto said: “It’s the most beautiful win of my career. It is a race that has more and more value, it has history now, it has an amazing crowd and so many spectators. It’s like being on the Tour de France here.”
All are available on my website
I also take commissions to paint you on your bike!
Hope you enjoy

We get inspiration from strange places. Last year, the Queen had her official birthday and we had the Trooping of the Colours on in the background. I glanced up as saw the gulls on the roof opposite parading on the rooftop. There a whole row of gulls in perfect time with the marching bands. This is a fun painting to remember the moment. If you look carefully you will even see some of the iconic building of the ever-changing London skyline.
Oil on profession quality oil paper.
This painting is framed in a high quality professional white wooden frame
One of my overwhelming memories of the Winter Olympics in South Korea was of the North Korean cheer leaders. It was fascinating, creepy and inspiring all in one. This is my interpretation of the choir.
