The fictitious but believable painted personality that is Pearl remains a constant companion in the studio. Some readers will remember how she was popping up everywhere during our ten years in Sheffield. Nowadays she rarely occupies the easel where a more figurative style of painting gets priority. When asked to paint her in a bespoke scenario this summer, it was hard to refuse. I forgot how fun it was to mix the auburn hair colour, find ways to include Irene the Cat, float 2D pearls around pencil-thin necks, and liberally blend goofy with glamorous. Already the owner of Paddling Pearl, the outdoor sports enthusiast wanted a keepsake from her vacations in Jávea and this is an iconic view of the Playa de la Grava with Cap de Sant Antoni in the background. Thank you dear Chrissie and Ian. Come back soon!
