I haven't posted in a while as I've been head down getting on with some commissions. I will be posting about the process of creating one of my portraits shortly for anyone who might be interested in seeing the development of a portrait from start to finish. Until then I wanted to share an interview I had with lifestyle blogger Gurby Griffiths in which I talk about my work, what inspires it and a little bit about my journey to becoming a portrait artist.
Here's a little taster of what we talked about, to read the full interview follow the link below...
What fascinates you about portraiture?
I love people and I love the challenge of capturing what it is about a person that makes them recognisable. A landscape can be easier because there is a lot of artistic freedom with depicting the image. You don’t have to be so precise. I like the challenge of painting faces because even getting the tiniest positioning of a feature makes the person look unlike themselves.
