Welcome to the Bob Spendlove Arts Website
Here you can find the latest information regarding commissioned paintings in watercolours.
Hi and welcome to my website
I have been painting and drawing for most of my life. When I was five I can remember drawing a Fodens lorry at Primary school. Later I served an Apprenticeship with good old Joe Lucas and continued painting as a hobby in my spare time. This was mainly landscapes and when I moved to Shropshire I was in my element!
I have always been interested in classic cars and motorbikes so when I was asked if I could paint someone's classic motorbike the parts of the jigsaw came together. With my engineering background, love of old cars and motorbikes, and being able to paint landscapes and buildings my combined skills can tackle most painting compositions
All the work that I paint is commission based and a selection of these can be seen on the Gallery page.
So please enjoy spending a bit of time exploring my website.
Please note that Bob has decided to discontinue the shop aspect of his Gallery and to concentrate on producing commissioned work. Thank you for your support in the past.

Bob's Commission Paintings
Here's one of my latest commissions showing an E Type Series 1 Coupe parked outside the owner house.
Rather than showing all the house it was decided to concentrate on the vehicle and the newly built porch.
This gave a nice tight composition keeping the viewers eye focused.
I hope that you like it as much as the customer did!!
