Landscapes and House Portraits
Materials and Style
All artwork is hand painted or hand drawn using acrylic paints on stretched canvas or graphite pencil on quality Fabriano paper. I prepare a digital proof from client photographs and from the moment this is agreed, the rest of the portrait is completely hand made and unique. The portraits are detailed and realistic, capturing each subject's personality and character. Acrylic paintings are developed from thin layers of washes. Pencil drawings are layered with pencils of different hardness.
The blog features artwork that is just finished and off the easel. I take photographs of the work in progress and include these on the blog together with the reference photograph. I scan finished portraits and email these to the client for approval. The final payment is due upon final artwork approval by the client. See what is just off the easel here. Contact me anytime, if you would like to discuss your own commission or if you simply have a query or comments about this site. I am always happy to hear your suggestions and comments.
