My Bio
I am a retired doctor who took up oil painting and drawing in earnest in 2010. Prior to that I did very little, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I am self-taught.

Most of these paintings and drawings here have time-lapse progress videos on YouTube. Visit my website to link to them, or follow the links here on DA

Favourite Visual Artist
Ian Cumberland and Sebastian Kruger
Favourite Movies
Bladerunner and Mulholland Drive
Pleased to find out today that one of my paintings (Jeff) has been shortlisted for the Artist of the Year 2014 for the Artists & Illustrators magazine. Will be in an exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London from January 6th to 17th. There is a reader's choice award based on the number of votes received on their website.

Artists and Illustrators magazine has chosen my portrait of Stefan for it Picture of the Month for July on the theme of 'Faces'. Well surprised and chuffed. Just finished a double portrait. Did the under-painting in blue/green instead of burnt umber, which was interesting

You have a great gallery!

Great gallery, your portraits are really good! :) Definitely going to check out your time lapse videos soon :nod:
Your gallery is breathtaking, I'm so inspired to paint now :D
Wonderful gallery. Self taught as well. Thanks for sharing your talent.
WoW! I find it amazing that you have only been painting for 5 years and are self-taught!!!
To read that is very inspiring, I've always wanted to paint but felt like I have missed the opportunity as the time for me to go to college and university has long gone!
But to find that its possible to paint like this without years and years of university training is amazing!
I find you and your family incredibly inspiring, you are all a great example of what can be achieved if you just work at it.
Thank you.
Thank you for the fav really appreciate it, I get inspired a lot by your paintings :)
I'm deeply, deeply honored by the return watch - you're sooo amazing :worship:
