My Mother


Quite a character by the look of it! Great portrait

This is so impressive Shaun. Love the folds in the leather chair and the very natural pose of your mother. I have also had very disparaging remarks from family members when I’ve done their portraits. It’s just a family thing, so don’t take it to heart.

A fabulous portrait Shaun. I agree wholeheartedly with Carole. Artists love true, honest portraits. However in the short time I've been painting, I've quickly learnt that family members prefer a 'little air brushing'!!

Great style Shaun, here and yours! I think it’s a great portrait.

I like this portrait. Natural pose and shows character.

Many thanks Paul, Susan, Carole, Tessa, Heather, Ian and Sandra.

From my archive - a painting of my Irish Mother - she hated it!!!

About the Artist
Shaun Byatt

I try to achieve vibrant colours in my paintings. I work intuitively with large flat brushes - I also try not to overwork my pictures and they are often completed in two sittings. I use good quality acrylics because of their excellent pigment content. I like to interpret what i see in front of me…
