Acrylics on canvas board, 12 x 16″
Definitely one of my very first attempts. I had read a Frida Kahlo biography at the time, perhaps that explains some.
Oil on canvas board, 300 x 400 mm
One of my first oil paintings, and still a household favourite 15 years later as I write (and back-date) this note.
This is also known as Hoppe Hoppe Reiter because it was once exhibited as a huge print in the Truman Brewery, east London, as part of an event sponsored by Hewlett Packard. They required that the letters H and P appear in the works title, so we got a little creative with the title.
Watercolour on paper, approximately A4
One of my earliest works, clearly influenced by a Frida Kahlo biography which I read at the time. Don Giovanni is our (then) cat, who only dreamed of mice but never caught one.
The waterscape is in reference to the Day Skipper sailing course, which I completed at the same time in rough weather in the Solent.
