Disney Castle bedroom that went viral.

At last after seemingly ages I have published on my website pictures of the Disney style room from a few summers back.



Not in any way meaning or trying to sound negative, hoping more to lean towards the vaguely amusing...
Having spent what seems like forever being basically tired, well at least since the kids were born, it's just about all my energy can deal with to produce these artworks, sort the images and build webpages, do social media and the like, so I've not much left to put towards saying anything. So...  I won't lol. 

Night all, hope you like the latest website update. Oh I can just muster the impetus to say this, of course you may know already that my newer, more current activities and artwork images usually appear on my facebook page first, which is kind of normal these days, so the link to that is:


Comments always welcome, tags and shares are honey.

If you like Beatrix Potter then check out my latest pics:

Beatrix Potter style attic space

A lot of work went into this delightful space, and I'm happy to have finally got the pictures sorted (they were all a muddle, jpegs and tiffs and RAW files scattered about, it took a while to re-find a lot of lost images), anyways I've added them to a new webpage. There was something kind of quintessentially English, sort of twee, yet calming and also grounding about painting these characters and scenes in this lovely property, I was really quite invigorated by it all. Of course it helped that I only live a quarter of an hour away in the amazing part of the globe that is Dartmoor, so my commute was also rather splendid.  There are three separate areas to view and is a respectful nod to Beatrix Potter's world. That link again:

Large Disney Playroom


Hi folks, I've been beavering away this year and during the spring I painted this rather large playroom mural for the family of the well known premier league footballer, Charlie Austin (Southampton), featuring many of the their favourite Disney scenes and characters. I also added a version of the real Disney Castle that's at the Magic Kingdom, Disneyworld, Florida, complete with firework display. This was an epic commission that took 45 days to complete, I hope you enjoy the little video that tries to capture the artwork as best I could. Hope you like it as much as I do, and as Charlie does!

New mural added to website - Woodland fantasy scene in School Library

Hiya, I've been working hard this evening to get this mural I painted last year up on to the Sacredart Murals website. There's always so much to do, resizing and optimising images, adding all the wording and all the extra stuff that you need to do in order to be found on t'internet. So here it is, ready to pop into your field of view with just one click:

Pieced together this composite image to work from...

..with the job of painting this for real to come . Looking forward to it.
This image is a Photoshopped amalgamation of Disney and Disney style artwork I found on the internet, with some "landscaping" to alter the composition  and painting over the top to make it lighter and brighter than the original version. I'll be using it as a guide image when I paint this whole thing as a mural in a baby's nursery, in the new year. The individual components of this image we're obviously not therefore painted by me, I can't take credit for that, but the reworking is analogous to making a new song out of digital samples. It is just a guide, no more, so I hope no one is offended, particularly the original artists whose names and whereabouts I don't know!
