  • You have such a distinctive style which I REALLY like. Your portraits have a real renaissance quality about them in terms of using darks to such a good effect … something I think I'm going to have a got at next. You also have a looseness of style and manage to convey real emotion through your portraits. Do you paint from life or photographs?

  • Thank you for the kind comments.
    My paintings are generally partly from life, wish I could do more from life unfortunately work stops play, and in part from photographs. My complete life paintings/drawing look different, possibly more loose.

  • In my ignorance I had to look up what "chiaroscuro" is. Sometimes I can pick up a brush and not have clue what end to hold, yes that is what I love to draw and paint. Perhaps too many years of walking around churches and galleries? Or perhaps not enough years to get bored with it. I would love to explore this technique or method more. Without pinching someone else's work it becomes a problem. Who could not but admire the paintings of the great artists, I purposely will not say any definite period or technique as the are some many brilliant artists around today as there as been through time, and use them for inspiration. The list would be too long.
