The owners Beth and Jon both love geology and came up with this great idea of portraying local rock strata from South West England. It was nice to paint something unusual and try some new techniques with the rock textures. Their two young boys wanted a dinosaur somewhere, they chose this ankylosaurus skeleton.

This was the second house I painted on St Lukes Crescent in Totterdown, a row of houses over looking Victoria Park where I used to play as a wee nipper!
