|Commissioned by Gary Featherstone|
I was asked a little while ago to do a painting for an old old friend of mine Gary Featherstone as a surprise for his other half. I was really glad to do so as I've known Gary a loooooong time and there are more than a few occasions in the long and distant past where he stood up for me when I was in my late teens. (Because if there is one thing guaranteed to paint a huge bloody target on your head in a small town like my home town is to be making a shit load of money as an escape artist!) So I have a lot of time for Gary and it was nice to be able to do this painting for him and his partner. Gary's also just became a grandfather for the first time very recently so he has all my best wishes and congrats for that. :)
The painting was done form a supplied photo as Gary currently lives and works in Holland and I really wanted this one to be 100% perfect for him. I was very pleased with the result and I think it has some of my best quality line work and line quality to date.

I forgot to add this commission that I'm allowed to show now that was done for a member of the British army
