Another day , another interview.
Vettriano has once again expressed his opinions on a range of issues including his favourite subject – sex . He says “I paint what moves me â€“ sexiness” He also admits to making mistakes with licensing his images and wants to stick to selling prints and posters rather than umbrellas.He has published a new book featuring his three exquisitely furnished homes, in Kirkcaldy, London and Nice; his painting techniques; his continuing obsession with women of a certain type.
He was asked if he loved his country. “I love Scotland’s landscape,” he’d replied. “But some of the people in that landscape have made it intolerable to me.”
Inspired by the art of Jack Vettriano , 68 year old pensioner Frank Spruce has entered a national competition to create a painting in the artist’s unique style. He saw the competition to seek out an painter in the style of Jack Vettriano in a newspaper
Spruce was so thrilled when he heard that Vettriano would be on the judging panel that he decided he had to enter and sent in a copy of a self-portrait.
” Nobody else will pose for me and sit still long enough so I sat in front of the mirror and painted myself,” said Mr Spruce, from Fir Grove, Paddington.
Frank has put on exhibitions in libraries across the town for the past five years and his paintings have sold well . Vettriano’s paintings include Singing Butler and Dance Me to the End of Love.

Jack Vettriano has started a new career in music with Scottish band St Jude’s Infirmary . He has starred in the video of the band’s song ‘Goodbye Jack Vettriano’ which was recorded yesterday on the beach at Edinburgh. The band faithfully recreated the scene of Vettriano’s most famous image of the Singing Butler
They only intended to ask his permission to recreate some of his paintings in the shoot, but they were stunned when the elusive artist volunteered to feature in the video.
He made the offer after the band presented him with a copy of the song during a hastily arranged meeting at Edinburgh Airport last Sunday.
Drummer Mark Francis, 31, said: “He rang us up later to tell us he loved the track and also said that he would appear in the music show video. Mr Vettriano then called us later in the week to tell us that he has talked Ian Rankin into getting involved as well.
“We’re delighted that they are both coming to Porty beach. Jack wants to have ‘love’ tattooed on his knuckles – just like in the lyrics of our song.” Guitarist and cellist Ashley Campbell, 28, added: “It’s all just snowballed from when we met him at the weekend. “He had heard of our collaboration with Ian, and we put them in touch with each other for what will be a rather surreal and exciting day for us. “Jack’s agreed to recreate some of the poses from his paintings and he’s going to get Ian to do the same. “The finished video should look great. “Jack’s annoyed they didn’t take us all to Leven beach, which is the inspiration for the beaches in his paintings. I’m sure the Edinburgh Riviera will do just as nicely though.” art
