Gran Via, Watlington
32” x 32” (81 x 81 cm) / Acrylic on gessoed panel / £7500
‘Gran Via, Watlington’ is an acrylic work, 32” x 32” (81 x 81cm) on a prepared gessoed panel. It was painted over a period of six months following moving to Watlington in August 2014. One result of the move was to discover an elevated view of one of Watlington’s main thoroughfares, the High Street, an aspect I’d never seen before. The title, ‘Gran Via, Watlington’, is in homage to the celebrated Spanish painter, Antonio López García, whose painting, ‘Gran Via, Madrid’ is world-famous.

GUARANTEED TO LAST 1000 YEARS
I live by the rule, when you’re painting you’re not only making art, you’re making furniture. I use the finest light-fast oil, acrylic and watercolour paints, and work on hardboard. If you don’t damage, burn or submerge the paintings, they should last 1000 years. If they don’t, well, get back to me.
