The paintings went up last week and Mr Hughes said he was happy to have been picked.

“I apply for online spaces all the time and I got the okay from Saatchi this month.
“The site is really good, I think it’s a good step forward.”
The 80 year-old added he believes he might be the only Cornish painter to be given a spot on the website currently.
“I haven’t seen any other artists from Cornwall on there,” he remarked.
Mr Hughes, who has also been shown at a Paris gallery and has pieces displayed at St Ives spaces, added he creates “abstract expressionism” - with his style centering around semi-abstract seascapes and harbour scenes at the moment.
The pieces on his Saatchi page include a storm over Gwithian and natural light captured above St Ives.
