Well! It has been a while since I posted last, but not a drought; the portrait above is one of several new paintings I have completed and I will include in my upcoming newsletter ... not on my list? You can subscribe here !
I met this stunning girl in a café in my home town, gave her my card, and crossed my fingers. Some months later, we did connect for a sitting at my studio and I am so pleased that I managed to captured the essence of this wonderful, gentle soul. Enlarge the painting (click on it), and look at the lovely colourful loose treatment around her captivating eyes. Ah! and the effective reflected light ... tip: the colour of light is not always white!
I will be in two shows this summer;
Gallery Odin's Summer Show starting June 25 to September - details here
and again this year, Art in the Garden on July 26th - Michael Jell has been hard at work in his already beautiful garden, and there will be two additional painters this year - details here
