Family portraits are a wonderful way to capture the family dynamics and commit a certain, precious time to permanent memory. The artist prefers a casual, relaxed approach of the family at leisure rather than the more formal posed affair. This it because it better reflects the essence of the family and the individual members and how they interrelate.
The family portraits shown here were all painted from photographs that the artist took at the sitters’ houses over the course of a weekend or 2 separate visits. (With the exception of the Kimmins Family portrait which was painted largely from the imagination to capture a life-time of idyllic family summer holidays in Cornwall). This ensures that the artist becomes familiar with the individual personalities, the family dynamics, the ethos etc and has time to then plan a composition that reflects all the above, and enables her to paint the best family or group portrait possible.
