Barbados Surf

This is the largest format I have ever undertaken – (250cm x 150cm). which meant that I had to invest in a new heavy-duty easel to ensure that the canvas could be securely balanced before I did anything else! Based on the approach I took on one of the previous large-format paintings, I simply got on with the task in capturing the overall ambience of the Caribbean and the brilliance of the turquoise ocean crashing against the volcanic rocks.

The experience has proved invaluable and I look forward to taking on similar challenges in the near future.


Private Commission 

“ While building our contemporary new home on the coast we soon came to the conclusion that our current collection of framed prints would not do justice to the house. We had a palette of colours, based on the shade of timber, floor tiles, stone and wall colour that we wanted to use. At our first meeting with Vyvyan and his wife Barbara, it became clear that our colour ideas and potential landscape scenes could be captured on canvas. The advice and sharing of their experiences were crucial in terms of canvas sizes, frame design/colour along with potential locations to show off the artwork. We moved in six months ago and can honestly say we are delighted with our “Living with Art“. Comments from visitors are most complimentary.”
