My painting Gainsborough's Daughters will be in the Open Exhibition at RBSA during the month of March.
Based on an unfinished painting by Gainsborough of his daughters which I didn't see in real life until after I had painted my version.
Looking at the image on the internet it was hard to see the finer detail, and I was surprised to find out that what I had thought might be an envelope or piece of paper was in fact the cats tail. Remnants of the cat remain in Gainsborough's original but I have omitted it completely.
