Portrait of a Barrister

I'm always surprised at how folk have the time to keep updating these blogs. I've neglected mine and will try to make amends.

Here's a picture of Guy Wyatt, Barrister. He sat in his wig and court dress for a chalk drawing and looks the part! These chalks are done in two or four sittings from life and make a fine record of likeness in a limited number of sittings. The professional portrait makes an impressive image and captures an important part of the sitters life.

It's always a pleasure to get to know one's sitter. Finding out about their profession or trade is a pleasure and an education.
