Whenever a visitor to my home is happy to model for me I enjoy having a go at their portrait. Unfortunately the sitter’s visit usually comes to an end before the painting does so I’ve a studio chock-a-block with half-finished works. Here are some that got finished and a few self-portraits that come about when I’m the only one who’ll pose for me.
