Portraits




Various portraits I have painted over the years. The pictures above are all done in oil paint, some on canvas and others on wood panels.

The paintings here are done from photographs, although not snap shots. This avoids many hours of having to sit still. The finished work is not as photographic as they may appear in these images. I think the painting process needs to take the image further than the photograph.
