ADAM & EVE POSTER

This is the poster I’ll be using to publicise my forthcoming exhibition at the Chateau Le Fréchou in the summer: ADAM & EVE AND OTHER PAINTINGS.
Everything you need to know is on the poster. If it isn’t please email me.


Adam & Eve - A work in progress.


This work in progress shows the stars of my forthcoming exhibition “ADAM & EVE AND OTHER PAINTINGS” which will be on view in the Orangerie at the Chateau le Fréchou during the summer of 2018. (47600 Lot et Garonne). 

I have already posted pics of earlier stages of their development (scroll down to view). As you can see they are not yet finished and there will no doubt be more changes to the figures as the paintings evolve.

Watch this space.

We’ve known Anna & George longer than we’ve known anyone else in France.

So I did this copy of Van Gogh’s Yellow Chair for her.
We’ll give it to her in a few hours time.
Hope she likes it.

ADAM AND EVE IN BLU

“Adam and Eve in Blu” is another study for the life-size pair of paintings on the same subject that I’m currently working on. The large paintings will go on show at an exhibition I’m having at Château du Fréchou in Gascony, France. 
This painting is done in watercolour, acrylic and black ink. The paper size is 42 x 59 cms The actual image is 35 x 43 cms. The work is signed, titled, dated and embossed.

If it’s bought, it will be posted in a very durable cardboard tube.

STUDY FOR A LIFE-SIZE PAINTING OF EVE

My life-size paintings of Adam and Eve have gone into hibernation. (They will both be part of my exhibition at the Château du Fréchou in summer 2018).  But it’s too cold to work in my studio which is the only place in the house that’s convenient for paintings of that size. (They’re each 2 metres tall). However, as they are by no means finished—in fact, they’re in the preliminary "blocking out" stage—I’m amusing myself by doing studies for the figures of both Adam and Eve. 
By chance I recently saw Damien Hirst’s GQ cover photo of Rhianna as Medusa. (Obviously inspired by Caravaggio’s famous painting). Needless to say snakes would be ideal for Eve’s hair. So this is a watercolour study for my big painting of Eve. You can see the original on Saatchi online.
