Hi all
Been super busy as of late, but I did manage to take a couple of short videos of some current works so you can see a little bit of my painting process. These are both primarily oil pastel-based works.

18 x 24 inches
Oil pastels and colored pencils on pastelbord

*Watch the video here:*

I will post the final artwork here once it's complete

Some work in progress photos:……………

"Swimming Horses"
Oil pastels and acrylic on pastelbord
24 x 36 inches

*Watch the video here:*

The final artwork…


As always, you can see more of my work on my website at
  • Listening to: Joy Division
  • Playing: Mind Games
  • Eating: Dover sole, vegetable salad and thai spring rolls
  • Drinking: tea (Irish breakfast)
