George has been very busy recently, completing 4 paintings. The first is a still life skilfully painted with the items looking 3D and the highlights on the glasses and metal objects perfectly painted.
Do not scroll down to the other 3 paintings if you are arachnophobic!
Inspired by the myth of mortal weaver Arachne who was turned into a spider by the goddess Athena, George has painted not just a spider but also her eggs. He was concerned that he hadn’t captured the translucent luminosity of the eggs, but he’s done a grand job.
