Everyday I start off rain or shine, with an hour of walking with our dogs on Wimbledon Common -a lovely open patch of nature on the edge of London – lots of life going on – horse riding and lots of different interesting dog varieties and friendly people. This 30cm square illustration “Doggie Friends” is painted with acrylic water inks which give light resistant intense colours, and which publish very well. This image has been published by Museums and Galleries and depicts my 2 dogs.
Also shown here is “Hide and Seek” which won the Dry Red Press award at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours last year and also illustrates dog walkers in autumn on Wimbledon Common. The image “Dog Walker” is on show in the 2016 RI show at the Mall. “Daily Constitutional” is currently at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery London SE1.
