“On a recent trip to Malaysia, I travelled with family to Thailand for a couple of days, staying in the city of Hat Yai, near the border. While out walking that first evening I came across this Thai restaurant which immediately reminded me of Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks' painting. I returned later that night with my camera, took several reference shots, and on return to England, got to work on my own version of that painting, producing 'Hat Yai Nighthawks'.”

"Barcelona dogs 2, 2015" by Sasha Sokolova
Sasha Sokolova recently worked on the all-painted animated film Loving Vincent. This piece is her take on a summer scene near the beaches of Barcelona. Just back from the beach is a park developed when Barcelona hosted the Olympics and where people often walk or picnic or ride a bike. This “couple” caught her eye because they were both older and from another time, walking across a modern development in Barcelona. A mix of new and old.
