A Diary of a Portrait I

Two weeks ago I began a painting of friend and fellow painter Sheila Day Rutherford. Sheila has attended a number of my courses over the years and I’m so pleased to have finally managed to make a start on this long intended portrait. Over the next few weeks I will upload a photo to the blog after each session, as a diary of the portrait as it progresses week by week.

This first photograph was taken after a session of three hours. The painting, oil on linen is 12 x 16 inches and continues the ‘familar faces’ series.
