I was fortunate to receive a commission to make several panels for a private house. The subject specified was deer. We agreed that I should make a selection of 26cm square trial panels in a variety of styles and colours which we could then hold up against the house to see which images suited the best.

I began by sketching the deer in Richmond Park in London. From these drawings I made at least 20 test pieces which depicted deer in manners ranging from three dimensional/realistic to graphic/stylized. This page shows three of these tests. The experiment revealed that black and white images in a semi-realistic style best suited the house. I then made several panels for the client, including the one shown which is 104cm x 43cm. The trial pictures remained with me for use in exhibitions.
