Beer house history

All of these paintings were commissioned by Jonathan Christie at Octopus Publishing, in 2017, for The Craft Beer Dictionary, by Richard Croasdale, published in 2018, now available in all good book shops, if you can find one. This job demanded a great deal of in-depth research at my local craft ale place, the Overdraft on Shirley High Street. And then back to my shed in Darktown to paint like the blazes. Most are cut-out paintings, in acrylic & gouache, with splurges of collage & spray paint here & there too. Salut...

All paintings are £95, and come with a free screenprinted beer mat…
