Initially highlighting the large scale commissions I have been working on over the last few years.

After Matout, Meynier and Leary – Oil on canvas, 365 x 885 cm

I was commissioned to paint this for a large internal curved wall. The image was designed around a central composition taken from a ceiling piece in the Greek Antiqities rooms in the Louvre, Paris. I added large sections to the left from part of a Charles Meynier ceiling piece and also additions to the right from other Louvre works and some of my own.

After Callet, Reni and Leary – painting on a domed ceiling, 2650 x 255cm

I painted this in a building in Glasgow. It is painted onto a 26.5 metre circumference dome. It is designed from various paintings in the Louvre, Paris and Guido Reni’s Aurora from the Casino dell’ Aurora Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, in Rome. It also includes many elements of my own.
