Here is another portrait, painted as a present. I paint many portraits as birthday or retirement presents and they are a great celebration of a major life event. Here is an earlier and a later version, to give a feel of how the picture grows over several sittings.

Here's something quite different. This is an oil painting of a young lady in a very special coloured dress. This was painted from life in about five sittings and has all the rich tone and impressionist feel of a traditional painted portrait. This is one of a family of four...painting family portraits is a speciality, either as individuals or as groups.
