Oil on oil paper, 16×12”
I have recently watched Portrait Artist of the Year 2018 on Sky Arts with great enjoyment and much inspiration. Daphne Selfe was one of the sitters and I thought I would try my hand to see how my work compared with that of the competitors. I found it quite a challenge to paint an elderly lady without overworking the wrinkles, but I am reasonably content with the result. Quite a departure from my usual landscapes.
