Portrait of David Smith


This portrait was painted digitally using an Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro with Adobe Photoshop Sketch and Adobe Fresco software, and is based on an iPhone photograph taken by its creator at the 8 January 2020 meeting of the RCPSG Senior Fellows’ Club (SFC). It is the first purely digital artwork in the College’s collection.

David Smith FRCS was Chair of the SFC from 2015 to 2020. His varied roles within the RCPSG started when he was elected first Junior/Trainee member of Council in 1973. He served as Vice-President (Surgical) from 2000 to 2002.

The artist, Andrew Tannahill FRCP, has been the SFC Honorary Secretary since 2016.
