My clients often have busy lifestyles and they find my working procedure suits them.
This consists of my taking many reference photographs which I store electronically.
These are taken in different settings and lighting; a relaxed informal procedure.
Normally I spend time, a day or sometimes a little longer getting an insight into the person I am going to paint.
The finished work is a composite picture of my various impressions to produce a good likeness as well as reflecting my clients character.
In my studio I take time sketching and experimenting with composition and colour, until I see in my mind's eye exactly how I want the finished work to look. The next step is applying paint to canvas using a mixture of techniques traditional and modern.
I also paint landscapes and cityscapes in watercolour and I always have a small selection for sale at my home.
