Portrait Painting

As well as landscape and natural history painting, I also enjoy creating portraits. These are generally painted from photographs sent to me by my clients, though initial sittings for preparatory sketches will help me get to know more about the person I’m painting, to create an image which better reflects their qualities and personality.

The portrait process is very straightforward – I can visit with a camera and laptop and together we will settle on an image, or I can work from existing photographs.
