Inquisitive Barbary Macaque

On a visit to the Monkey Forest at Trentham, this little chap came and sat beside me to pass the time of day. It’s a great place to watch and photograph monkeys, plenty of space for everyone and they are all fairly tame and used to the general noise and sight of humans. I decided […]

Spurn Point Sunset

This is my first attempt at producing a lithograph style digital painting which has worked out to my satisfaction. The appearance of the sun reminds me of a ghostly deep-sea diver or maybe an alien.
