Jack Vettriano seems to have been inspired by the Riviera in France . He has announced a new set of 10 paintings based on the Clyde-built Tuiga – the flagship of the Yacht Club of Monaco .”Most people are stuck at the end of Berwick Pier doing landscapes and so to get invited to be involved with the Tuiga centenary was just lovely.

Trinity House awarded him the Freedom of the Incorporation and commissioned Raeburn to paint his portrait for the walls of their headquarters.
