A north-east artist has become the recipient of a prestigious award.
Joe Fan, who lives and works in Aberdeen, was one of the runners-up in the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize.
Mr Fan received £1,500 for his piece, Fontainebleau Reconstruction.
The LPS Prize is now in its 11th year and is recognised as being one of the UK’s most distinguished awards.
Organisers believe they are unique in that they focus on “representational painting” and draughtsmanship.
Originally from Hong Kong, Mr Fan moved to the north-east to study graphic design at the former Aberdeen College of Commerce.
He subsequently gained a place at Gray’s School of Art where he graduated with a firstclass honours degree in painting and drawing.
In 1988, he won the Miller Homes Young Scottish Artist of the Year, and then moved to Paris, where he spent time at the Cite Internationale des Arts, a respected artist residency.
Following this, he returned to Gray’s as a lecturer until 1997, when he gave up his post to become a full-time artist.
The winner of this year’s prize was Henry Kodracki, from Edinburgh, for his oil painting, The Cowgate.
Mr Kodracki was given £15,000 as well as an engraved gold medal.
The Young Artist Award of £2,500 was awarded to Bernadett Timko for the oil painting Studio 7.
And Charlie Schaffer won the Brian Botting Prize of £5,000 for his painting, Madonna.
All four paintings are currently part of more than 140 works being exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London.
The exhibition will finish tomorrow, and will then go on tour to Guildford House Gallery from June 25 to July 17.
