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.
Another commission, this one to paint a thunderstorm over Seattle, USA complete with a lightning strike.It was a challenging subject, being quite dark I didn't want it to become muddy so made sure my blacks were made from ultramarine blue and burnt umber with some purple, pyrrol orange and cerulean blue to keep things lively. As a warm up I painted a quiet urban scene of an abandoned building in front of some new tower blocks.
Last week I was contacted by a publisher asking for the right to use a painting of mine is a book cover design. The paint was done some time ago and the only photo I had was poor quality so offered to paint a new one. I ended up painting two.
A couple of days ago I pained a hunting scene and posted it on Twitter. It sparked the interest of a previous buyer and very sound chap who asked if I could paint two more on the theme of England. No problem, I said, and so ... We have The Hunt, Haystacks and Scarfell Pike in winter. Just waiting for the frames now.
Owing to a clumsy Royal Mail postman, who folded in half the paintings I sent to a buyer, I’ve had to paint more. However, I think the new ones are an improvement, so that’s nice.
