Too rainy to varnish any paintings this week and I can’t quite settle to finishing off a couple of projects, so have been doing a sort through in the studio. It appears that I have become quite fascinated by painting portraits. My first one in acrylics a number of years ago, presented me with all sorts of problems, drying too quickly – but I certainly learnt a lot, even though I did not tackle anymore faces for a while.
I have been working in oils for the past year, after some workshop sessions with artist Marie Mansfield, and most of those have been portraits. What a joy! Such a difference to the character or the expression of a face by the slightest touch of colour or tone. Yum!
Then this year, I have rediscovered watercolour and….wouldn’t you know it….portraits in watercolour.
Hope you enjoy my new folder of Portraits
