Oil painting 16 x 20 inches
I normally make paintings of people using photographs as the inspiration. Todays painting is a first for me, as I began by making working drawings by direct observation of the subject. I also made detailed tonal and colour notes and then made the painting by referring only to the drawing and colour notes.
It's a pity that most of the people who commission paintings from me live so far away, as I would love to work more directly in this way.
