‘I love the variety offered by painting different types of portraits. In each category the challenges differ – the scale changes, the medium changes and the style changes. This keeps the energy flowing and my mind fresh. It is easy, and indeed very tempting, to get too comfortable but this tends to permeate into one’s work and there is a danger of becoming slightly formulaic. By constantly changing subject matter, scale and medium, you are permanently reinventing the wheel. Getting too comfortable in one style is not an option.’
Within each of these categories you can explore a wide variety of oil or pastel portraits of men, women, children, family groups and animals by the artist.
