I've just finished my painting called 'House on the Hill'.

It's a stormy day at dusk and the sky is closing in as rain starts to fall.
A spooky looking house overlooks the wet road and at that instant in time, from a bygone age, a man and his cat ride by on a Penny-Farthing bicycle.

Painted in acrylics on canvas.
Size: 20" high X 16" wide.
Framed in black wood.

SOLD on the 15th March 2018 at Hemingstone Frames gallery in Suffolk.
Just 5 days after finishing it !

A new under the sea painting - Tropical Fish

Here's another painting that I started without any idea of which direction it would take me.
After painting the background and then turning it upside down I could see a possible picture emerging.
I've never painted an underwater picture before but the shapes and colours just seemed to call for this scene. The light breaking through from underneath seems to add an air of mystery to the painting.
I'm pleased how it turned out.
It's now on sale at

Fairy Magic - a new small painting by Tony Lilley

Here's a small painting I finished yesterday. Acrylic on 300gsm watercolour paper. Size 8 X 10 inches. This painting started life as an experiment which gradually turn into what you see now.
I was trying to create more of an abstract with only a small amount of detail.
It wasn't going to be a fairy with magic wand to begin with but as it progressed I could see more of that in it.
