Portraits in oils and charcoal.
Studio Oil Portraits
These works are completed over a number of sessions. Some are purely from direct observation of the sitter and others supported by photographs.
Oil Portrait Sketches
These portrait sketches have been painted in oil on board or arches huile paper in under 2 hours each. Most use the Zorn palette (cadmium red, yellow ochre, black and white only) to speed up colour mixing.
Some recent sketches in charcoal, graphite (propelling pencil and water soluble graphite) and scratchy old felt tips from a toy box.
Some older sketches in charcoal and compress charcoal.
