Preliminary Study

Going through some old photographs recently I found these, from the late 1990s.

This shows my preliminary study for a competitive commission from the Jerwood Foundation. They were asking for artists to submit images of positive depictions of children for two large paintings for the boardroom of the Institute for Paediatrics and Child Health.

I sent them this watercolour along with some other sketches, and won the commission.

The paintings (over 10 ft wide) can be seen with some photographs of the unveiling here.

I am told that they now both hang in St Thomas' Hospital, opposite the Houses of Parliament, though I haven't yet seen them in their new home.
