Just finished my portrait of Caroline Deeble. My challenge was to create an authentic representation of an artist at a critical time in their journey, making decisions for an upcoming exhibition…
Preliminary sketch of one of my current portrait subjects.
It is amazing though how much thinking goes into a portrait, for example I started planning for one of my portrait projects early in 2021 and only last week, after the Zoom shoot and about four days of sketching and going through hundreds of images and my research notes I finally decided on a composition, mood, theme and original message behind my painting.
What a great experience to have my landscape painting ‘WILD GRASSES AND DUCK AT WINGECARRIBEE CREEK’ hung in the Queanbean Palarang Council Art Prize competition.
