Bob’s nostalgic artworks are popular with our collectors around the world, thanks to their timeless charm. Using a muted colour palette that draws attention to the unfolding narrative, the Yorkshire-based painter adds layers of glaze in a style inspired by the Old Masters of the Renaissance.
Light and shadow is a recurring theme in Bob’s work, with the artist often describing the ‘northern light’ of his youth in Yorkshire mill towns as an important influence. This touching piece harks back to simpler times and the courage of a child's heart.
Bob says: “It's not showing off, it's just doing what you do with an over-the-top, highly-embellished flourish. And why not? If you've got it, flaunt it!"
