SOLD. Portrait of Gay Hawkes

 Painting a person from life is most confronting for my sitter and therefore for myself but I love the alchemy that takes place.  I really have to embrace risk for there is no way of knowing whether I can manage to make a good image.  A successful portrait for me needs to be edgy, confronting and surprising…

Here are some of the portraits I have painted over the past 10 years.
