Portraiture is something I really enjoy.
Sometimes I will see a face or an individual that I just know I have to paint. I will be captivated by the pose, expression, shapes of clothes & colors of the figure and I can instantly see how it could be painted.
I also use models and have a couple of muses that I use as inspiration.
At other times I am asked by a client to paint family or friends as a commission.
This is a very special privilege for me and I love developing the image of the person and exploring their character and essence for the final portrait.
