I endeavour to portray emotion and atmosphere in paintings not always true to life, but true to themselves.

    This is wonderful John. Dunno how I missed it before. A most unusual idea and very beautifully painted.

  • In his latter years he was not so able, but we struggled as best we could. It was a shame that he could only use one hand, but he enjoyed himself for all that. The composition came freely to mind, but I had to use reference photo for angles and whatnot. I am glad that you took the time to ‘rediscover’ it.
