Wendy

This is the portrait of Wendy which I did this weekend. I worked from a photograph after having done a couple of sketches form life. The sketches help in getting to know the sitter, their face, their individuality. Everybody has a particular look and gaze. This is what needs to be conveyed in the portrait.
This is conté crayons on paper.16x25 inches

Women

Painting women and  moments in their life. Taking inspiration form my own life, women around me and images from the media. I am trying to record contemporary women and their life. Their appearance, their "look" their  moments. I have chosen to depict women because I associate more with them being a female artist.
The painting is almost finished, there is still some work that needs to be done yet.
Oil on board 26x30 inches

Phoebe

This painting is now finished, I will come back to it in a few days to see if there is anything else that needs doing or adjusting. Always a good idea to turn it against the wall for a few days!
