I was very pleased to hear that both ‘Daisy’s Dress and Mimi’s Dress have been pre-selected for the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour 2019 exhibition at the Mall galleries. Both paintings are watercolour, ink and textured gesso and measure 50 x 68cm framed.
Sold recently to a collector in London, this collage is composed of fragments of some of my old paintings and tiny slivers of some of my digital prints and photographs of the cities, some of which I used as image transfers onto textured gesso to recreate the crumbling facades of many of the buildings in both Venice and Havana.
It’s great to be able to re-use parts of some of the painting experiments I’ve done and stored for a rainy day!
A similar version is available as prints via SaatchiArt – here’s the link Cuban Venetian prints available – Saatchiart

It was lovely to meet the other artists who are exhibiting at the Mall Galleries yesterday, and to see all their very impressive work. I was delighted to see my painting in a great position in the main gallery.
The curation of the show is really well is really good and must have taken a long time to plan. Many thanks to all involved for all their hard work! The exhibition is on from 6-21 April.
