The three selected are certainly colourful and two include people. I’ve been focusing on adding more figures to my paintings. Early on, I chose subject matter to avoid using figures as I was never happy with how they looked. In recent years I’ve been drawn to adding people more and this next one is part of a series I’m developing of buskers and people living life on the streets. Library Vibes is the next painting selected for the SWA Exhibition.

The final piece is a Lockdorwn creation and most of the figures are wearing masks or a helmet in the case of the Deliveroo guy.
