Portraiture

This page shows a selection of recent portraits. (Self portraits can be found on the Gallery or Archive pages - based on my mirror image they have been very important to me in my development as an artist.) My preference is to work from life whenever possible and the interaction/interrelationship between myself and the sitter informs my painting process.

Covid-19 and Lockdown almost stopped me in my tracks. Fortunately an initiative by Tom Croft artist #portraitsfornhsheroes reignited my enthusiasm. I painted 4 free portraits for NHS key workers. Chatting with them on the 'phone and sensing their delight at having their portrait painted overcame the resistance I had to working solely from photos.
