Online gallery, portraits

I started portraiture just because I'd never done it and wanted to learn how.
I'm particularly inspired by the John Singer Sargent portraits: not just the
big society oils but especially his charcoal drawings. Gwen John's and
Ken Paine's portraits are also particularly moving. I committed myself to
a regular evening class, beginning with drawings in pencil then progressing with charcoal, pastels and oils. Eventually I felt confident enough to hire my own models and leave the protective atmosphere of the class.

This page shows a selection of portraits ranging from "Carrie", a two-hour study on A5 board to "Katherine - Reflective", A1 in size and requiring about a dozen sittings.
