Superb style Mark. You’ve captured character and a thoughtful moment.

So much character and so well painted.

This is a ‘quality’ portrait Mark - great use of paint, colour and capturing the subject perfectly.

And this is sculptural, the way the paint is laid on. Brilliant work Mark - all your others too.

Love at his very sculptural painting Mark. Such contemplative brushstrokes and a very beautiful portrait. Love all your other portraits also.

I did comment but it's not appeared. Anyway, this is a super portrait with great sensitivity

Lovely, such a contemplative pose, very well captured!

Before having read about your sculpting, sculpting was the word that came to my mind when I saw this. It is a great painting. Fab.

Great portrait, Mark, and great gallery.

Patrick's wife Glynis is a sculptor, she invited me to join her in sculpting patrick in clay. I'd never sculpted before, it's much harder than it looks but i really enjoyed the experience and i think it really helped me in painting of patrick.
