George (Private Collection)
Oil painted portrait on convas depicting an elderly neighbour.
Inital drawings were created from life in order to capture character. The portrait was then constructed and completed using a photograph as a reference.
This piece created during the period when I was attending the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland, where I completed a course in drawing and painting from life.
Portraits can be created using a selection of photographs as reference along with some life drawing while the person is sitting for the artist.
