Subtle Confidence – Close up and an insight!
I rarely show much detail for obvious reasons, but here goes with a close up as I had the scan image handy. The original painting is 24″ x 36″, her face is a few inches across and my knife is 1″ across. I may not leave it online for long though. Too much detail?
Beautifully framed A2 (16″ x 24″) prints of her and many others can be purchased for only £120 until 24 February, as a special offer in aid of the Royal Berkshire Hospital Voluntary Service Charity. They are presently being exhibited at the RBH. I owe the RBH Big Time! They were so good to me – Twice.
At any time, signed, unframed 2400dpi giclée prints on the highest quality archival art paper or canvas can be purchased as follows:
16″ x 24″ – £59
24″ x 36″ – £79
36″ x 54″ – £119

And the original is currently available.

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
