Oil Portrait of a Young Man – Hugo Davies

A life-size head and shoulders oil portrait of my handsome nephew Hugo Davies, painted this summer.  Oil on canvas, 16 in x 20 in.

I am very pleased with this portrait as it has the vibrance of a sketch whilst being a good and strong likeness. It conveys his warmth and gentleness whilst still having the energy appropriate for a painting of a young man. The colours are vibrant and the brushstrokes are energetic.

Some portraits come very easily.  This was one of them.  I wish they all did!
