METHOD OF WORKING

I consider a portrait to be a joint project with the sitter, involving flexibility to accommodate the time commitment that the sitter is able/wishes to make. Consequently, whereas I paint entirely from life if required, frequently photographic reference is taken and utilised to reduce the number of sittings to 2 or 3.

As a minimum, I need a single sitting to undertake an oil head study and to take photographic reference.
