Madame Butterfly

Instead of painting with every oil colour available in Dubai, I had an urge to paint with just blues, and maybe a little bit of purple. I finished my 'Madame Butterfly' painting last night. 100cm x 80cm.

Just about finished on my Rory McIlroy painting for my man's Man Cave.

Thank you!

It has come to the end of the month-long exhibition at Time Oak Hotel, in Dubai... and what a success it was! Pussy Galore and Indulgence are now in a private collection in Kuwait, and Honey Rider is now in Montenegro. A Big Thank You to the new owners of my paintings, and thank you to Time Oak Hotel for hosting the event.

Getting ready for the exhibition at Time Oak Hotel in Dubai

Putting the last finishing touches on my Bond Girl collection in time for the exhibition at Time Oak Hotel in Dubai from 16th March to 16th April.

'Pussy Galore', Oil on canvas, 120cm x 100cm

The funniest thing is that it didn't even occur to me that the name of this painting was inappropriate in the Middle East because she is such an iconic bond girl, but it seems Time Oak Hotel in Dubai do not want to offend anyone so they have adapted the name tag slightly...  hysterical...:

'British Agent', Oil on canvas, 120cm x 100cm

'Honey Rider', Oil on canvas, 100cm x 120cm

Bond Girls

This is the first in my Bond Girl series.  Ursula Andress who played Honey Rider in the first James Bond movie, Dr. No.

This painting is oil on canvas, size 120cm x 100cm.

I've continued the union jack round the edges of the canvas

And this is how it would look in a room

I was inspired by my recent trip to the far east to paint this one.  'Geisha' is an impasto oil painting measuring 152.4cm x 91.4cm.

Sunday, 2 February 2014


Finished 'Daydreamer' and now working on 'Geisha'.  This is the largest painting I've worked on so far and I am going through A LOT of paint..!  'Geisha' is 91.4cm x 152.4cm.

Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched... hahaha!

Daydreamer is another impasto painting.  Made up of many layers of oil which have been applied to the canvas using only a palette knife, this has given the painting lots of depth and texture.  The painting is on a deep edge, linen canvas 120 cm x 100 cm.

This is how it would look in a room:

Life is getting colourful

Finished The Muse and now working on a second.  A couple more layers to go and I think that should just about do it.

The Muse

Starting the new year off with some bright colours and a new style of painting.  I have created 'The Muse' using thick oil colours and only a palette knife giving this painting masses of texture.  The canvas is a deep edge canvas measuring 120 cm x 100 cm.

The Muse can be bought via:

Putting the first couple of layers on.  I am loving my pink rubber gloves... they are the new must-have fashion accessory for 2014..!!!:
