Portraits

Portrait of an Old ManI love to draw and paint people, to discover their real selves and bring out their personalities. It is always a collaboration between me and the sitters where their thoughts and visions of themselves are crucially important. Painting portraits is never boring, always challenging, rewarding and exciting – like people.

In my opinion, a successful portrait is one where the personality of the sitter comes through and the portrait can be appreciated by the sitter, artist and viewer.
A key element for this success is the ability to reproduce the likeness by bringing out character using principles of composition, colour arrangement and various techniques suited for the model’s personality.
