Meet the Tudors



Six modernist acrylics paintings depicting "The Tudor" dynasty:-


  • King Henry VII
  • King Henry VIII as a young man
  • King Henry VIII in middle age
  • King Edward VI, a boy king
  • Queen Mary 1st
  • Queen Elizabeth 1st


These portraits formed part of an annual calendar, which were SOLD in the support of charity.

  • Inspired by visits to Malaga, Spain and seeing the Jean Miro exhibition.

  • This is a portrait of a Spanish Lady done using acrylic inks, and iridescent medium.

  • It was produced and SOLD in the form of Art greetings cards


PUNIC WARS

HANNIBAL'S ELEPHANT ARMY


This depicts Hannibal's part in the Second Punic Wars against the Roman Empire.


After crossing the Alps with his army including many elephants, Hannibal, of Carthage, had significant  early success against the Roman Empire.


This is a line-and-wash painting using gouache colours, and Derwent Inktense pencils.  It is done in the illustrative style of early-styled 20th school History books, which is probably regarded as unfashionable today. 




PADDINGTON STATION LONDON


A TRIBUTE TO JOHN YARDLEY


This watercolour painting is of Paddington Station, London, and was SOLD some time ago.    


In the painting, I made use of greys, blues and masking fluids, to develop highlights, such as the steam and smoke. 


It is a sincere tribute to the famous English painter John Yardley, who's work I very much admire.
