The Proposal, oil on linen, 90cm x 110cm

A well painted head is the basis for any decent portrait.  The real challenge is designing a complete picture.  All the elements of the art: light, shade, line and color, come into play.  The pose and hand gesture do much to characterize an individual or express a certain idea.

I would like to share some of my slightly larger pictures.  They are all life-size images.
