My largest ever painting which took almost three times as long as my usual paintings, hence why I've not posted any new artwork for a while!

I absolutely love it!

Hello to all at DA...

My artwork and I are under consideration by the Fine Art Trade Guild for an award! Wow.... Here's where to vote for me. Please, please, please vote and share, share, share: Vote for Richard Young

And here's the FATG webpage and the fantastic artists who I am up against:  Best Selling Artist Award 2014

Meanwhile, thank you so much to those who purchase a print of, :+devwatch:, comment on, :+fav: and even view my artwork. I sincerely appreciate it. :worship: + :hug: I do try to reply to all comments, though there's simply far too many :+fav:'s and :+devwatch:'s for me to thank those who do so individually. If I tried, I'd simply never get any painting done!

And remember that if anyone is interested in a signed gicleé print, they are only available via my website: R Young Art. Please e mail me at with your requirements and to discuss the details. However, I can't offer the full range of print types and sizes that DA offer as I simply don't have time to administer such a range. What I can promise is absolutely outstanding quality from my professional Epson Stypus Pro 7880 wide format printer on the highest quality Epson 350gsm heavyweight Premium Satin poly/cotton (65/35) water resistant art canvas at a high definition 2880 x 1440 dpi and using UV resistant 9 colour 100% pigmented inks guaranteed lightfast for 75 years. This canvas has a slightly glossy surface and may be stretched for framing if required. I can also print on Epson's heavyweight fine art paper if required.

Also, I am always on the lookout for representation by publishers, galleries, agents, licensors and other representatives by the way, in case this is you, or in case you know one who may be interested in my artwork...

And I welcome any opportunity to generate a little publicity via exhibitions, magazine articles, interviews, blogs, etc...
