40 x 50 cm, acrylic on canvas, 2006.

This portrait was a new challenge for me, in that it is the first full portrait I’ve done recently of a person whom I’ve never met in the flesh. Not knowing the subject makes it difficult for me to improvise too much, and I found myself worrying much more about likeness than I usually do. Nonetheless it was a joy to paint, as I had several lovely photos to work from, and the client was a dream (providing information and photos, and leaving me plenty of artistic freedom). It was a commission done for Jeremy, who gave it to his wife Katy as a Christmas gift.
