I'm very excited to have been asked to produce a painting to present to Her Royal Highness Princess Anne!
Commissioned by Toddbrook Sailing Club to celebrate their 60th Anniversary it will capture the sailing club in the surroundings of the reservoir. It's a beautiful place which I know very well, so couldn't be happier! - if a little daunting? She will visit the club on the 15th Jan, view the original painting and be presented with a print of it which needs to fit in her helicopter! The original will go on sale the same day.
This signed charity print is now available to order, at a special price and for a great cause.
All sales will help the Thomas Theyer Foundation reach their ultimate goal - to fund a brand new lodge at the White Hall Outdoor Education Centre, providing respite breaks for young people with additional needs.

Below is a timelapse movie of the recent painting 'Last Light'. Capturing this fantastic view of Tower Bridge as the day draws to a close and the shadows extend, enjoyed by those on a view relaxed evening stroll.
Below is a timelapse movie of the recent painting 'Sightseers'. An early morning view across to Westminster as the groups of tourists start to descend.
Recently, a local landmark, near Bollington became a focus, as the famous ‘White Nancy’ set on the hill, was adorned with the Manchester Bee. With the City in the distance, the view was overlaid with a tempestuous sky. I felt that the sky reflected recent events in the City, and so was inspired to go home and paint.
It seemed very fitting to link this piece with a Manchester charity, in support of the City that I so love and admire. It's a place that has provided me with so much inspiration over the years. My chosen charity is ‘WE LOVE MCR CHARITY’, as its aim is to support and improve the lives of Manchester people.
The print of White Nancy is on sale now, with 50% of profits going directly to the charity. Available in three sizes, the 95 limited edition prints are available to order directly from this website, to order click here.
Here's stage 1 of my painting of 'Stresa', a town on the shores of Lake Maggiore, Italy. I stayed here on a painting trip last October and really enjoyed the atmosphere of this busy town and the bustling restaurants. See next stage on Youtube at https://youtu.be/N2lMA1OJ7xc
