Available to buy on…

This is an acrylic painting I did a couple of years ago in South Africa, now in my wife’s private collection :) Lets try to keep these amazing cats sleeping peacefully under the stars for as long as possible.

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.

    How many hours did it take you to make this fur look so fluffy? I want to stroke the little fellow :)

    Knowing how difficult and time-taking it is to paint fur I greatly admire your skill Tom, you’ve done to perfection.

    Thanks friends – Dave you are quite right – hours and hours. I was into photo realism at the time as this was quite popular in Johannesburg. I still tend to get lost in the detail – even with my Sci Fi paintings. Thanks Brian and right back at ya :)
