Another enjoyable demonstration, I felt the pressure on this one painting Patrick from life for Eastcote art society.
I think a backdrop and more dramatic lighting would have helped!

My latest project is restauranter Anthony Worrall Thompson. I painted him in 2005 on a tv programme called A brush with fame, he chose my portrait as his favourite. These two paintings are studies for a bigger portrait of Anthony in his study with his books. As well as running restaurants and featuring on recent tv series Trawlermen he writes cookery books and as far as I know written 32 so far. #portraitpainting #oiloncanvas #wetonwetpainting #rosemarybrushes #winsorandnewton #oxfordartsociety #bucksartsociety #rbsa #portraitcommissions
