AMATEUR ARTWORK: 2002 to 2005
Please note that all paintings listed by Artist Codes 0000 to 0020 were painted prior to my turning professional. I started to number them in this way not in any particular order, then realized that if I was to be a professional, I needed to have a proper coding practice. So I decided after these 21 pictures that I would have four-digit Artist Codes, the first two digits representing the year, and the second two digits the order in which I either painted or sketched the artworks (not necessarily completing them at the time), i.e. “1023” was painted in 2010 and was number 23 of 23 paintings started during that year.
Artist Code: 0013. This is not a computer generated picture, but is a large, cropped, square version of the painting Nature’s Gems NS05 (see below).
Artist Code: NS05. Completed May 2004. Water colour on Aquarelle Arches 100% Hot Pressed cotton rag paper. Unframed size 9″ x 12″. Framed size 21” x 17”. Selected for and SOLD at the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art (NEWA), August 2008.
