Walk Tall

Springer German Shep


Like the ‘Contrasts’ series, I originally produced the Walk Tall images for Artko. Like Contrasts, I felt that it would be prudent to publish a short run of these three works myself. Again, like Contrasts, there are just 20 Artist Proof copies available on either paper or canvas.

The thing that make these images a little different is that they were painted digitally - a technique I’m developing as part of my continued efforts to add variety to my work.

It has become apparent that some people are a little unsure as to what exactly  digital painting is. As a consequence, I have added a page to my ‘Portraits’ web site on which I have tried to explain the process. If you are interested, please click on the link


I have followed the trend of my most recent contemporary works with these pieces by painting them black and white. However, this would have been tricky with a Chocolate Lab, so in his case I’ve used a subtle degree of colour. Enough, but not  so much as not to make it jump out against the other two images. I think it works, I hope you do too.
