A bit about Waiting in an allotment

My oil painting of an allotment. I really enjoy painting allotments, especially urban ones. I have indicated the city in the background with the row of Victorian terraces. These houses were based on the street where I used to live in Hackney, East London.

Allotments are unique places of community too, they are one of the few places in British society where you are actively encouraged to be innovative, and an individual. I would also say they are pretty classless too these days. Yes, The whole of life can be found on an allotment.

This painting featured at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition a few years back.

The opening event was an odd day. I expected to turn up at Burlington House, have a few glasses of wine with the great and the good then finally search the rooms to see if my picture was in a ‘prime place’ to add a further boost to the day.

Not a bit of it. In the square we were all assembled (even the great and the good) only to be trooped over to St James’ Church across Piccadilly for a service of thanks. Such an odd thing to see Tracey Emin singing hymns and behaving impeccably whilst sporting her Royal Academy medal. I felt rather disappointed. A little part of me wanted her to be plastered, and do something outrageous in front of the vicar.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
