My Claim to Fame

Here is another one of my watercolour painting,people have been asking to see here is my claim to fame !

I was commissioned by Royal Doulton to do this scene for a plate,i dont know whether they used it,but they did buy the copyright !

I did four of these depicting cottage scenes with flowers they chose this one,the others have been sold.

I still have this one,which i would'nt part with partly because they have the copyright,also its nice to keep for my grandchildren.

When you work for publishers they just buy the copyright of your work not the actual paintings,i think they make some kind of printers plate from the original,i never went into all the details.
Its nice to be able to keep your original artwork

I also did cottage designs, for displaying on mugs.they kindly sent me the finished mugs lol

Watercolour ATC's

These ATC's I painted in Portugal,perhaps i was homesick as they are all scenes in Essex where i live,actually i painted them in the evenings,through boredom,Portugal TV i,m not into haha......... 2 have been traded,hence the gaps !
