Game of Thrones Original Oils

Game of Thrones Paintings:

The idea of the Game of Thrones series of paintings came as a reluctant viewer of the Television box set. Given to me as a Christmas present, that I’d promised to watch.

After several discs had been on I started to get into it, or rather, the characters got into my head ! Then, it became addictive viewing.

I vowed to myself by the end that I would attempt to create impressions of the cast in paint. this was done firmly on the basis of…They’re in my head…now I’ll get into theirs ! …and… so it began.

Jazz Musicians Paintings

Trevor has recently finished a series of painting featuring some legendary entertainers Jazz musicians and singers. This has been an ongoing project for a number of years now and a travelling show, being added too over this time. More like a living collection, the paintings are being shown at festivals and events and some of the images included have now been published as prints. ” In the field of music the people I’ve chosen to paint are indeed my heroes, it’s a very personal decision who I include in this hall of fame and not every one of them are represented yet, but I’m working on it. “

Trevor’s palette is mostly bright and bravura for these paintings but also working in more monochromatic colours on some individual pieces. The ” Ella ” series were the first works completed, smaller canvases with colourful slabs of paint in mosaic-like  formations to construct the whole image. This method gives the images a jazz-like feel but also representations of individuals are faithfully kept. ” This collection of paintings represent not only memories for me when I was growing up in London but also a travelogue of painting styles and methods that I can use to express how I feel for the subject”.
