'Without Masters' (Collector's Cut) by ThePpeGFX 'Without Masters' (Collector's Cut) by ThePpeGFX
No longer was he singing in the service of anyone, nor was she standing there as a maid. On that beach they found each other and shared a gaze, now free and without masters.

I have always thought there was a beautiful, subtle tension between the butler and maid in Jack Vettriano's 'The Singing Butler', so I wanted to reimagine that scene. Perhaps some of Vettriano's other work borders on erotic art but I absolutely love the composition of his paintings, strong and gridded, whilst broken by the sultry characters.

I think this is one of your best pieces man. I'd thought the same thing about those too but the idea of taking out the dancers to change the pictures meaning is genius.

That means a lot coming from you, mate, although it's hard for me to know how much I like it myself. You spend so long drawing, cutting and painting it that by the end, you're tired of it. Time will reveal how much I actually like it.

But aye, I'm glad someone else felt that way about the butler and maid. The hat was a last minute addition and I quite like it as a symbol of the butler shedding his role.
