Trompe L’Oeil Mural

This mural was commissioned for the swimming pool at the 'Flying Boat Club' on the island of Tresco in the Scilly Isles, UK. Nineteen members of the Dorrien-Smith family, wearing Edwardian clothes, were apparently attending a regatta as a flying boat lands a little offshore. The 75 feet long painting was done in five pieces in my studio, painted in Golden acrylics and fixed to the wall with Golden products.
