2010/11/12 Portraits

In 2010, when I began studies in observational drawing my attention was soon drawn to portraiture. And then in 2011 I painted my first self portrait. Shortly after, I set about deliberately focusing on the subject, to develop skills but also finding comfort in the subject matter. When stuck for ideas, a portrait is an excellent way to remain active.

With few exceptions, I have made pictures of people I know and who have had or continue to have a connection with me and so are an extension of my story.

By no means are all those whom I would like to paint represented here. Nor do I expect to get round to them all. But when I'm ready too, there's plenty to be getting on with.
