a Portrait completed over Nine Sessions for
Wales Portrait Award 2
Anybody who prefers their portraiture tempered with a degree of flattery will not be detained by this painting for very long.. Executed between August and October 2007, the motivation behind this portrait was to concentrate not only on quantifiable appearance, but also to capture the essential spirit of playful mischief so often displayed by my sitter and partner, Carole King; herself an artist.
The means by which these features are translated comprise a variety of surface treatment, from fine detail to broad gesture. Areas of impasto beside thinly glazed sections serve to provide incidental interest across the picture surface.
