New Portrait

I’ve been working through about half a dozen portraits and figures lately. This is the first one done. Most of the others are very close to being completed and I’m looking forward to getting on with some new ones and catching up on some ideas I’d like to explore.Over the last few years I’ve become increasingly interested in exploring still life and how they can relate and express a human experience or presence. Landscapes and city scapes as well hold an interest for me, although it does resonate a little differently. I’ve been drawn to figures since my earliest studies of art history and the fact that they are probably one of the most challenging subjects to paint. I’m sure there are many artists out there that would agree with me on that.Portraits, however, as a subject, are what interest me most. There is soo much potential to express a persons emotion or state of mind. The psychology of people and the qualities they can convey I find fascinating and an endless supply of inspiration. Just as much can come through with the gesture, position or action of the hands as with what’s going on with the face.

Much of my intention in painting is to promote specific qualities and I thoroughly enjoy finding new ways to express them by painting portraits.
