What a fabulous image Alan, laying on his branch playing it cool but defy waiting and watching for dinner.

Really like the cool colors, the intensity of his stare, though not sure I would want to be under that gaze, LOL,
well done, J.

Artist Statement
for alan webb
alan webbI retired from professional life a few years ago. To overcome the wind down I came back to my great love of Watercolour painting especially wild animals, birds, domestic pets and portraiture. All my work is pure pleasure as I seek to portray what I see in true form. I also strive to achieve fine detail in all my work.

I have been staggered by the great comments I have received and thank everyone for their praise. However there are many great artists among you who should be praised for their great perceptions.

If anyone has a particular true life image they would like me to try and capture please don't hesitate in contacting me on e-mail at

As I am not totally happy with this commission I am currently creating a face only painting for this person as an alternative. Would you do the same ?
Dear Alan it's always a challenge to make commisions, but I think you have nothing to be afraid of as it's a glorious painting. When I started writing this... view answer
