In 2006, I painted this portrait of my friend and work colleague Jenni. Posted below are stages of my progress.
I have long enjoyed painting portraits, and was fortunate to have attended portrait workshops with the late Margaret Cilento. She taught in a very formal way - having a skull placed beside the model facing the same direction and at the same height. Please see my portrait gallery for other portraits that I have painted over the years.
I accept commissions for portraits in charcoal, oil and am soon going to attempt my first portrait in encaustic. Contact me to discuss if you are interested in having your portrait painted. I can also paint animal portraits.
