Still got the bug

Percy - wip
Although my sore throat and cough have now gone, my fascination with Doctor Percy Trevelyan has not. So here's another portrait of the good doctor in the making.

Prints and things now available to buy on-line

So, I've had several people ask recently if there is somewhere my artwork is for sale - which is very flattering - and the answer so far has been... no.
Until this evening when I decided to set up shop at Fine Art America and Society 6.

I have added a few paintings and other items in both shops. I still have to sit down and suss out how it all works, but I've taken the first step... which is a pretty big deal for me.

I will be adding more artwork to both stores in the very near future, so stay tuned for that.

Also, I'm very much just sucking and seeing it... so if anyone has any painting in particular they would like to see for sale or any particular item... pillows, phone cases, clocks... do let me know.

Lots of love,

The doctor is in

Doctor Percy Trevelyan
Although my love for Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes reigns supreme I must admit that my heart has been temporarily stolen by Nicholas Clay as Doctor Percy Trevelyan from the Sherlock episode 'The Resident Patient'. I found him particularly adorable in the beginning while he was still a struggling physician, wrapped up in a blanket in his cold flat - before he got his hair slicked back and started wearing fancy suits. Although he looks ace in fancy suits too :-)

The Other Doctor

Percy - wip
Having spent the last few days under the weather with a sore throat and horrid cough I turned to one of my many detective box sets for comfort. This time it was Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett an the episode called 'The Resident Patient' in which Holmes and Watson are contacted by a doctor by the name of Percy Trevelyan, played by Nicholas Clay. Well, I kinda liked his face. So I kinda had to paint it. Work in progress.
