Here is a small commission that I did for a Christmas present recently. It was an educated guess, but I thought this young man, and his two siblings, probably wouldn't sit particularly still for me - and their mum agreed. So I helped her with some advice on photographing them and the images she came back with were perfect to work from. She managed to get some beautiful shots in soft natural light, and all the while keeping it secret from dad, who didn't find out about it all until Christmas Day!
In other news, over the weekend of 12th and 13th January I am holding a January 'open house' event at our home in Horsham, West Sussex. It will be a wonderful opportunity to pick up some original artwork for your home. If you would like details please contact me - I'd love to see you there.
