Work in progress
The portrait on the left is due to be on show at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition, which runs from April 29th to May the 16th. I am still working on the one of the great Liverpool comedian Ken Dodd, shown in the dressing room of the nearby Memorial Theatre, Frome.
I have started to work with two figures on the same canvas; one male, one female. It’s an exciting development, and they are like characters in a play or novel. I can move them around as I please and play with contrasts in scale as well. It will be interesting to see how their relationship develops.
More paintings of the artist at work.
