A tiger – again – I know!!!
I have been working on a couple of portraits lately, which has delayed me tackling my favourite animal – yes – tigers! This one is painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas and was a real release, and pleasure to do.
Getting back to paint.
This one is helping me to get back into my painting mojo after quite a long break. He’s painted in oils on 40 x 50 cm canvas board. Onwards and upwards from here I hope!
Yet another experimental exercise for me and another learning curve! This one is painted in oils on 40 x 50 canvas board. He was definitely a challenge but I am pleased with the outcome and also with the response of those who have seen it! I hope you like him too!
This one is a slightly different style for me – more abstract and loose. It’s painted in oils on 40 x 50 cm canvas. I thoroughly enjoyed myself painting this one!
This beautiful collie belongs to a wonderful friend who wanted a painting of him in oils. Here it is! It’s in oil paint on 30 x 40 cm canvas. From her reaction to it, I would say she’s pleased!
Yes, I know I keep painting tigers! My reason is that I find them absolutely fabulous majestic creatures and I want them out in the world for people to acknowledge them! This one is painted in oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas. The photo has come out a little blurry unfortunately, but you can get the idea!
This is my beloved boy Bo, now four and a half years old and a “character”! He’s painted in oils on a 40 x 40 cm canvas. I managed to get a picture of him when he was a little startled which explains his eyes on this one! He has beautiful eyes which have changed colour several times over his life. I hope you like my interpretation of him. This one is obviously not for sale, but I can paint your pet if you send me a decent photo!
Painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas.
Lions – A quiet moment.
Two lions, a couple, enjoying a quiet moment together. Painted on 40 x 40 cm canvas in oils. I loved the colours in this picture and thoroughly enjoyed painting it.
Something new to me – a chicken! Painted in company at my local art group, this is painted in oils on a 30 x 25 cm canvas. Great fun!
Small oil painting on canvas board, 30 x 30 cm, of mountain lion. This one was created at my small weekly art group meeting over a couple of weeks, but here it is, finished at last!
This time an Ocelot – I don’t think I have painted one of these before! Here it is – oil paint on 40 x 50 cm canvas.
Another Lion in Oils – but a totally different colour palette!
Well this one turned out differently! I was blessed to receive a gift of some new oil paints – tubes of lime green and orange yellow! This is the result! I was actually quite pleased with the result as I thought it could somewhat clash with using those colours, but it all seems to have blended well overall. An experiment with limited palette, but an enjoyable exercise!
Back to Oils – and more Lions!
I just love oils – definitely my favourite medium. This one is on a 60 x 40 cm canvas. Watercolours give a totally different effect I’ve found, and lions look so much more “here” with oils. Mr & Mrs Lion – I hope you like it.
I am new to watercolour painting but these two don’t seem too bad to me! Both on A4 sized paper. The tiger I have painted before in oils so it was interesting to me to see the differences that alternative mediums can highlight.
Couldn’t resist! This one is painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas.
He looks like he’s in a state of Bliss to me! Oil paint on 30 x 40 cm canvas.
Horse on Black Canvas
Second go on black canvas! I am still experimenting with it and undecided whether I am keen or not! This one is also 40 x 40 cm, painted in oils.
Wow – a black canvas! First attempt with a black canvas! The size is 40 x 40 cm and it’s painted in oils.
Painted in oils on 40 x 50 cm canvas, these horses show their caring side. All animals are wonderful!
The red wolf is a canine native to the southeastern United States. Morphologically it is intermediate between the coyote and gray wolf, and is very closely related to the eastern wolf of eastern Canada. The red wolf is the world’s most endangered wolf. There are only an estimated 35 or fewer wild red wolves, and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature classifies them as critically endangered.
I have painted this one in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas. Beautiful creature and I hope never forgotten.
Bad Hair Day
Painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas, this one was a bit of fun!
Oil paint on 40 x 40 cm canvas. This one was quite difficult! I was trying to get the original lion colour to seep through, which I hope I have now achieved! I hope you like it.
Mother and Baby Elephant.
This one is oil paints. painted with brushes, on 50 x 60 cm canvas. This was painted intermittently between socialising with my daughter who came to visit on holiday and spending time at the easel! Thus is has taken longer than usual to complete. I hope you like it.
Gorgeous big cat stalking me! Oil paint on 30 x 40 cm canvas.
Tiger daydreaming! Oil paint on canvas, size 40 x 40 cm. Brushwork and a touch of cold wax.
Returning to brushwork and avoiding the palette knife for this one. This Lynx is on 40 x 50 cm canvas and painted in oils. I loved doing this one and I have to say he was quite a challenge!
Lion study with palette knife.
Oil paint on 40 x 40 cm canvas – lion with attitude! Palette knife painting and some brushwork! A combination piece! The photograph of this one isn’t a true representative – the colours are more vivid in the original.
Continuing with palette knife, this cat study was fun to do. Lynx like. Painted in oils on canvas board 30 x 30 cm.
Another palette knife – this one of a gorgeous Shire horse – such wonderful noble creatures. It’s painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas board.
Another palette knife rendition.
This one was a little tricky but still great fun to do. I am really enjoying the palette knife experience and the effects possible. Oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas.
Study in Blue
I had so much fun with this one! Following on from my curious cow listed below, and still playing with the palette knife, this blue horned beast wanted to be painted! Oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas.
Painted in oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas, and using a palette knife again. Thoroughly enjoyed creating this one and I hope you like him.
This one was an first try at using the palette knife with intent! I thought he turned out quite well and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. He’s painted in oils with palette knife and brushes on a 40 x 50 cm canvas. I have no doubt he will take a lot longer to dry than my usual pictures! Let me know what you think.
This one is painted in oils on canvas 40 x 50 cm. Couldn’t resist painting him! I hope you like him.
Just a small oil painting this time – 21 x 30 cm – on canvas board. Love the colouring of this little lady.
Back to my favourites!! Tigers again! This one just looks like he’s chilling out to me! Oil paint on canvas board, 40 x 50 cm.

A few more of my watercolour pictures:
With my studio at a bearable temperature now, I also managed to complete my giraffe. Painted in oils on canvas, 25 x 30 cm.
Yay, my studio is now open again – or rather it’s not so cold in there that I can’t work! Finished off this one – just a small study in oil paint on canvas 25 x 30 cm.
Lynx – and watercolour. Moving away from birds and back to the animals I love. These two are first attempts in watercolour, which as you know, is a new medium for me!
Kingfishers – and watercolour. As earlier, it’s still too cold to work! I have been working on some kingfishers and I am showing just a few of them below. I hope you like them. Happy New Year everyone!
Robins – and watercolour. Lately it has been too chilly for me to work in my usual place so I have been creating some watercolour robins whilst keeping nice and warm! I hope you like them. Next year I shall be making some of them into cards – interesting times ahead! In the meantime I am keeping on practicing with watercolours. Merry Christmas everyone!
Tiger again – this one is thinking possibly? Also oil paint on canvas, 40 x 40 cm. Last in a series of three tigers.
Another Tiger – again oil paint on canvas, 40 x 40 cm. He makes me smile – I hope he makes you smile too!
Back to one of my favourite subjects – Tigers. They are so noble and beautiful. This one is oil paint on canvas, 40 x 40 cm.
Elephants on my mind! These two are oil paintings on canvas – one on board and the other on plain canvas. Both are 30 x 40 cm.
A mother’s love….
Elephants Dual Aspect….
A wild cat with attitude – resting up and contemplating. Enjoyed doing this one. He’s painted in oils on 30 x 30 cm canvas board.
This elephant took my attention and demanded to be in the limelight! It’s painted in oils on board, 30 x 40 cm.
To soothe me in troubled times I have reverted to another big cat picture. It’s oil paint on board, 30 x 40 cm. Considering all the fires raging so near our village he looks remarkably calm even though painted by someone with high anxiety levels!
Back to big cats – larger than usual at 50 x 70 cm, on canvas. Mixed media.
To vary things a bit I have done this abstract – it is mixed media on board, 30 x 40 cm. I hope you like it.
I have reverted to my favourite subjects again – tigers and cats! These two paintings are both in oils but on loose canvas, around 30 x 40 cm. I have now run out of proper canvasses, so will have to make do with some board I have found for the next picture!
A good friend of mine recently sent me a black and white picture of a lion family and asked me to paint it! This is the result. It’s painted in oils on 60 x 40 cm board. It was so enjoyable to do especially as lions are one of my favourite subjects and there were four of them to capture! I haven’t had much experience of painting on board so it was a huge learning curve to complete. Lock-down has a lot to answer for!
This painting emerged from an old sketch I found which I created many years ago. While isolated in lock down I had a good rummage through old artworks and found him. Although I could not remember his name, I do know he is a local resident. The picture below is the end result, and I have since found out his name as he was recognised from the painting! Wonderful! I hope you like him. He’s mixed media on canvas, 50 x 70 cm.
More on the bird theme – this time a Barn Owl – painted with a special friend in mind. It’s oil paint on canvas, 30 x 40 cm.
Trying something different – an eagle. It’s on canvas board, 30 x 40cm, in oil paint. This for me was a very interesting study and I may do more birds… not sure yet!
Another of my favourite subjects – the tiger! This one is having a rest I think! It’s little, only 20 x 20 cm, painted in oils on canvas.
I am back to my favourite subject – the lion. They are so majestic and powerful. This one is painted with oils and is on a canvas sized 30 x 40 cm. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved creating him.
I have been spending a long time working on a private project and therefore not been paying a lot of attention to my studio work. This piece I have just completed. It’s oil on canvas board, 30 x 30 cm.
A commission undertaken and completed, delivered and appreciated! These are oil paint on canvas board, 24 x 30 cm. An enjoyable end to 2019. Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year with 2020 bringing you all your wishes coming true.
