Drawing Commissions

A selection of realistic drawings made on request. The first one of aquatic birds was a re-drawn enlargement chosen from one of over 300 colour pencil drawings I made a long time ago for my book about water called PRECIOUS.

The Making of Delphi Apollo

A WORK IN PROGRESS My homage to the mythology surrounding Apollo and Ancient Delphi is a labour of love. If I had worked it out on paper before painting, in the traditional method, I imagine it would have taken much less time to complete. Instead it is an organic painting that grew into what it […]

Delphi Apollo

Ancient Delphi Brought Back to Life Through Apollo Oils on Linen 140 X 140 cm 2008/2018 Artists©Shaun Herron “Shaun Herron’s painting of Delphi is multi-leveled and intense.

Closing drawing for PRECIOUS

Finally, after about 17 years since the last drawing I did for “PRECIOUS_ A journey through life with water”, I have completed the closing drawing. Written on the page is the excerpt that inspired the project: “How did he love this water, how did it delight him, how grateful was he to it! In his […]
