My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    Beautiful card, Neil. I remember my Mother reading this story to me as a child, and I was so scared of the “lady of the lake”.

  • Thanks James
    I think of it as a book cover.
    I’ve forgotten the details of the story so I’ll read it again when I find it on google !!
    Cheers Neil
