Portraits 
Human features fall into groups of shapes and lighting can change colour of hair and skin, but there is more than this to the human face and figure. We have an automatic system within us that helps us recognise people in an instant, even from a distance. Characteristics, personality are all individual and dependent upon many influences such as the weather, health, mood and surroundings.  All this has to be seen by the artist, understood, visualised and translated into a painting that is not only physically recognisable, but a sympathetic interpretation with an artist’s eye.
If you are considering a commission please be aware that it may take at least 2 months or more for completion. Full details on Sales and Commissions page
