Since the completion of my portrait of Sheila which I documented as a portrait diary over the eight sittings we had together, I have been asked by students if I could do another portrait diary. So here it is.
I recently began this portrait of Anne. The canvas is the same size as all the other portraits in the Familiar faces series and is oil on linen. This first image shows the painting three hours in, and each of our following sittings have been of three hours each. The images here document up to our sixth sitting, since which another has taken place with a final one planned soon.
