Each print is signed and emboss stamped by me and comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity which details the Scottish Cup run to qualify and the teams AFC defeated on their way to the European Cup Winners' Cup Final .
As a life long Dons fan I was delighted to have the opportunity to paint a picture to celebrate the greatest triumph of Aberdeen Football Club. I have to thank Aberdeen Journals and Pittodrie for supplying the reference photographs.
I included a goal from the Waterschei and Bayern Munich fixtures along with the two goals from the final against Real Madrid, linking them visually across the picture. There are 19 individual portraits in the painting plus more than a dozen mini portraits within the goalmouths, St Clair and open top bus scenes. My finished collage of painted images aims to convey the success and celebration after such a great win. I wanted to paint the definitive Gothenburg picture with all the elements - the players, the fans and the goals and I also wanted to include all the now famous, almost iconic images eg Willie Miller holding the trophy aloft in one hand, the toothless Doug Rougvie grin, Gordon Strachan's V for victory sign and of course the John Hewitt leap after scoring that fabulous winning goal! I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole artistic process from the drawing and painting of the original through to the design, reprographics and printing.
