Hi, im an artist living in gainsborough uk and my work is varied using most mediums but most of my work consist's of pencil portraits because im often commissioned to draw them and have won awards for my pencil work.
I have my own website for commission portraits at and this is where most of my work comes from.
When im not working on commissions i will get my paints out and paint what appeals to me at the time which is varied and can be anything from landscapes to abstract depending how i feel.
Thank you so much for stopping by and i hope you find somthing in my work you like.

Chris Cox has uploaded Graham Hill

Watercolour painting on 300gms Canson Montvale watercolour paper.

This painting depict's Graham Hill in his world championship winning Lotus Cosworth 49b at the Nurbergring Germany, all Lotus cars manufactored in this year had a black badge as a show of respect for Jim Clark who sadly died in a fatal racing accident the previous year.

James “Jim” Clark was born on the 4th march 1936 in Fife Scotland; he was a natural born racer who mastered many forms of motor car racing from his early day’s racing in local hill climb and road rally events to his 18 race wins racing in the jaguar and Porsches sports car events and then his two F1 world championship wins for Lotus.
Jim still holds the F1 record for the highest percentage of possible championship points in a season at 100% and also holds the records for the highest percentage of laps in the lead in a season and the most grand slams taking pole, fastest lap and race wins in 8 races of a season.
Jim is also the only racing driver to win both the Indy 500 and the F1 world championship in the same season.
He was a brilliant racing driver who raced at a time when the sport was so dangerous that a driver was killed almost every season and Jim along with all the drivers of that era were true gladiators risking there lives week in week out for the love of racing.
On April 7th 1968 Jim was fatally injured when his car left the track and hit a tree at the Hockenheimring in Germany, he was just 32 years old.
Motor racing is still a very dangerous sport but because of the lessons learnt by the loss of talented racing drivers like Jim Clark there are many safety regulations to protect drivers and deaths are now thankfully few and far between.
This painting shows Jim Clark at Paddock hill bend Brands Hatch in his championship winning Lotus 49 powered by the Ford Cosworth engine.
