Boat, above, was probably the most commented on individual painting hanging at the recent Byzantium & Beyond exhibition. The large pieces from the Byzantium series were much talked about too, but this oil on canvas (roughly 1.50m x 2.50m) was singled out by many as their particular favourite. 

In part, I suppose, because it had not recently been seen - even in the studio it was buried within a pile of other large paintings, but also because it stands slightly apart from any of Dave's large series of work. Whatever, it is a stunning painting that demonstrates Dave's real feel for, and mastery of, colour.
