Birrell doesn't paint directly on the spot or from photographs, but improvises the essential memory of a place within the comfort of his studio. Aspects that attract him are harbours and their bric-a-brac, as well as mills and castles. Typical Birell paintings show clear and well-constructed composition with contrasting colours creating areas of light and shade, drawing the eyes into thescene.

I waited a long time for the print to arrive, repeated delivery problems that were very frustrating but customer services were excellent and despite everything I know I'll be shopping with King & McGaw again they do such a beautiful job! The print is beautiful, the different shades of blue and the touches of light make it moody and evocative. The framing is first class. I chose a flat waxed oak frame and it complements the print beautifully. I'm thrilled and just about forgotten about all the hassle with delivery.

It's a wonderful piece and even better than I expected in terms of the paper quality and tonal values. Equally satisfied with all my purchases to date. I do have issues with customer service but that's not for here.
