Some customer comments:

"It’s easy to be enthusiastic when you produce such wonderful images. The price sounds good to me."

"WOW!– another great job Chris, thank you. The girls look fantastic and I love all the detailing – the lace has come out well as you say, well worth the extra effort and the colours do work very well ...... The background looks great, so no changes needed."

"Absolutely fabulous, I have to hand it to you Chris, that is an amazing piece of work, I love it.....Fantastic work Chris, I’m really pleased with how it looks which is very much what I had in mind."

"What can I say but you have definitely done it again, I love the two new paintings, great detail and sense of action in them like the better sort of “boys own adventure” illustrations. I spent quite a while on Friday just looking at them and then on Saturday hung them up in the dining room and had a “proper” look at them in natural light – superb, I really am pleased with them. I’ll be getting them framed early in the New Year. Thanks for all your work on these, it definitely paid off."

'This was my first commission with Chris and it certainly won't be my last. The painting conveys the imagery and the atmosphere I was hoping for. It is an excellent piece of work' (Jacobite Charge)

'Thank you so much for Totila outside Rome 546AD. It's a super picture, you really do get to grips with a military scene and give it a sense of life and realism. One can easily imagine the Gothic king taking the air with his guards outside the walls. Great touch with the dogs!'

(Regarding a Hussarette):

"Wow, if I could paint like that my mind would run rampant."

(Of pen and ink drawings):

"HOLY COW! The artwork is fantastic beyond words. I knew that I would like it, but you have exceeded my expectations greatly. I am very pleased with your work and I think that we can do a lot of things with this. I will definitely want to commission more artwork. You have a very good eye for depicting military actions"

"These are great. I really like the finished articles and especially the ambush. Both set the scene and illustrate the text perfectly"

(Acrylic landscape painting):

"Quite honestly I'm blown away! The painting looks fantastic, even better than I could have anticipated"

And a thought from a famous artist: 

“What is quickly done is quickly seen, and would not bear the test of careful examination” 

Jacques-Louis David (1748 – 1825)
