Autumn Lights 2

This is the second in this series and much more going in the direction I was looking for. The colours and shadows on the face are much better I think.

Autumn Lights 1

This is the first painting in a series looking at the effects of Autumn Light. I’m interested in colour and light particularly on the face.

Well here’s the final piece, very loose for me but quite pleased with it. Now to paint the parents, both doctors with the nhs

Artist Tom Croft started this idea, on Instagram, of painting a free portrait for nhs workers. So I thought I’d have a go. This is the start. I was allocated a doctor and she mentioned her husband, who is also a doctor, so I said I’d paint him as well. She then said that she was embarrassed as she was only doing her job but would love a portrait of her children, hence I’m now painting three! This is the start so it’s WIP and there’s loads to do.
