Portrait project

So here are the first little studies from last week.
 And Michelle
They are quite small ...A5. I liked the black background.

In the week I saw a beautiful music video by Tim Arnold. -Change Starring the late wonderful Lindsay Kemp.
(click the link below to see the video )
Tim Arnold - Change (Starring Lindsay Kemp)
 I loved Lindsey Kemp.  I saw flowers at the roundhouse at 14 and I have been enchanted ever since.
The Video is simple, pure.
This is the first layer of the painting I am making of Paul. (Also quite a small painting- 40 x 30 cm)I will let it go where it wants too. Perhaps it will be fluid, perhaps realistic... As we talk and I explore Paul's animated expression... it will be what it will be.

New project for the Autumn

I just have to get back to the basics of painting. With no demands to sell or please the sitter or client. I need, need, need to be experimental....

So I put out an appeal for victims....oops....sitters on Facebook. Thanks to all those who messaged me back. Watch this space as the work develops over the coming year. 

                                                     Portrait of Blue; oil on canvas.

 Of course that will be alongside more formal work...(Any commissions most welcome!) 
Also I have finally finished updating my website. Please check it out and share!
