New ARRC Painting

#2
Maybe there getting ready for the car boot sale before they up-sticks??

No offence to either officer, but I would have thought that a Jackson portrait would need a fair amount of artistic work to be converted to a Richards one.

When did this tradition start? Does the ARRC have paintings of Jeremy Mackenzie, Michael Walker etc?

Jacko had one done of the Briefing Room in the Film Factory. The picture shows a session of a meeting with KPC. The people pictured were never actually all together in the same room, but it represents those who contributed. Have only heard a rumour of the copied idea based on the short ISAF tour that ARRC did.

The ARRC officers are really impresssed with the painting, they have been hit with a 20quid hit on their mess bills to contribute to the 80k cost of the portrait.

I'd have liked to have seen that! I'd have known quite a few on both sides of the table.

That would be this one, then:



Is this going to turn into yet another ARRC crusade by Outstanding? I only ask because, if it is, I won't bother popping back.

Looks like they are all sat around a Las Vegas style dice table. Throwing dice to decide what to do next?

Win some and yer lose some; roll up, roll up, bets on the table please!

There's a reason why we tend to commission pictures of heroic deeds as opposed to great men. That reason is that in 20 years time this will be in a Keller Bar with the faces cut out being used for subbie parties.

80K? I bet they are selling a lot of prints of it too. :roll:

Donny,
No intention to crusade that is for crusaders. Thanks for the copy though, they all look so natural, friendly and relaxed - must be a real art to creating that ambience.

Obviously a very intense briefing, only three people actually looking at the screen, with Brig Smith pointing and saying,"We Are Here?"

Can anyone help me out here? When did the tradition of paintings of “meetings” actually start, and don’t you think we should go back to paintings of valour and action which separate the Tradition of Arms from that of the boardroom.

Seem to recall seeing one of the Treaty of Versailles.Draw up a treaty but don't impliment it.
Back to this painting will someone tell that man to take his beret off.
Also seems to be a habit to do portraits of out going DGs why?
