Re-coloured water colour

Martha Graham. A painting I did 30 something years ago had faded, so I re-coloured it. It was in fact gouache, water colour being too difficult for me. I also think I was a better painter then.

The Singing Butler – copy

A neighbour suggested I copied this, she loves the original by Jack Vettriano. I liked Vettriano’s paintings from when I first saw them in the ’90s but I feel he gets a bad deal, despite prints of his paintings selling in their thousands world-wide, he has a bad reputation in the ‘art world’ and none of his paintings are hung in major public galleries. I like the illustrative quality of his work and the way he constructs strong images from photographic reference. It made sense when I read that he has likened his work to Norman Rockwell who was a great illustrator.
