Finally, a painting of my brother’s Bedlington Whippet “Lula”. I decided to keep it looking clean with no background, which I think works well.
Finally, and much to the relief of the clients, I have finished several new portrait paintings of dogs, two of which below. I also managed to sketch the platform at Halstead Keynes Station on the Bluebell Railway.
Although it is now March, and I have been painting, this dog commission is, rather belatedly, my first post of 2021.
My painting of Ely Cathedral adorning the cover of the Cambridge University Press Bible. Rather chuffed. CUP contacted me, bought the painting and the rights to use it. Also a pond and a commission of Haigh Hall.
2020 has been a strange year, the events of which have challenged even the most resilient of us.
Here's looking forward to 2021, and please [insert deity of your choice] don't let it be as weird as 2020.
I'm not superstitious but believe that owning a Henry Jones Watercolours 2021 calendar may ward off all manner of unexpected lurgys and peculiar elections. At £15 + £2 UK postage (overseas delivery at cost), this represents a bargain, if only for your sanity.
If you'd like one, please contact me here before 30th November, as I shall be ordering one batch of these on 1st December.
After what seemed an eternity, we finally got to France. Taking the car, a sketchbook, with only the first two nights booked, a thoroughly enjoyable tour of the SW and SE followed.
It has been a few months since I last updated the site, inexcusable lapse given the rather leisurely pace of things at the mo. Anyhow, below are a few recent paintings including a dog, a pub (out by 2200h) and Dartmoor.
During this current situation I've had a surprising number of sales and commissions. One recent was to paint the portrait of a dog, with a companion piece to follow.
As a counter to this cuteness I came across some images of a Plague Doctor, these were usually unqualified students or discredited medics who wandered about pretending to heal people.
