Inspired by the little sketch of the single galleon, I went bigger, bolder and more dramatic with this canvas "Adios Armada" showing a group of the galleons heading off into battle. There is also a You Tube video showing its creation.
I am a visual artist painting in acrylics, watercolours and oils and drawing in pencil, pastel (soft and oil) and charcoal. My topics cover the broadest range of the term ‘landscape’ including seascape and cityscape, portraits (both pet and human), animals, flowers and still life. I rarely do abstract work but I have a few examples of this genre. My style is realistic with a strong influence from the Impressionists. Most of my commission work is pet portraits, while my most unusual commission to date was to create one image that summed up the main elements in Peruvian Shamanism. I also do pyrography for sale or commissions. In addition to creating my own art work or undertaking commissions, I also teach both drawing and painting both face-to-face and online.
