I have just met up with my friend Sarah and given her this painting. Sarah started coming to my Brettenham class this September and she asked me if I would be interested in having a go at a portrait of her grandson Jasper. I was pleased to give it a go! She asked to have quite a bit of background in and not just a close up. So I tried out various compositions. I tried to capture some of the dreamlike quality children have at that age – when imagination and real life aren’t so clearly defined! She seemed happy with the end result!
Would you be interested in commissioning a painting in 2018? – send me a message and I would be happy to discuss the details!
