Much of Jack Vettriano's early influence came from studying paintings at the Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery in neighbouring Kirkcaldy. In 1984, Vettriano first submitted his painting to the Shell-sponsored art exhibition in the museum. In 1989, he submitted two paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy's annual exhibition; both were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted the three paintings, which he entered for the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London and his new life as an artist began from that point on.
