WHITE HOUSE Acrylic on primed boxed canvas 20cm x 20cm Original is not for sale

A white house on a hill in the far distance, a dull morning with dark clouds gathering on the horizon but the golden field on the hilltop still catches the sun. This painting was completed in ten minutes on an old canvas that had previously held a failed painting, it hangs above my desk as a reminder that anything is possible, nothing is unsalvagible.

MOORLAND WITH SHEEP (4) Acrylic on primed canvas 30cm x 30cm Original is sold

Two sheep observe the viewer from a distance as an early morning mist melts away across the autumnal landscape.

This farmhouse image of domesticity has always sold well and there are at least three other versions of this view out there somewhere (see right), its a view that I shall never tire of painting

ACROSS THE MOORS Acrylic on primed boxed canvas 50cm x 50cm Original is sold Two sheep gaze back at us from within their heather cover, this is their natural environment, the Pennine sheep are as tough as the terrain and survive on very little nourishment.
