With all this social isolation I am sitting at home and looking at past adventures. This portrait is from a series of portraits created at Beach Creative CIC in Herne Bay. I set up some workshops with the aim of encouraging people to try portrait painting . It took some time to convince George to sit as he is the one normally taking the pictures . My initial intention was to do a single portrait but it was so obvious George wasn’t happy sitting for us, at the first chance he would turn the tables on us. I changed the format on this portrait to capture the two sides of George.
I hope you don’t mind George I am looking at things from a different perspective at the moment and trying to reignite my enthusiasm for painting as I like many have time on my hands and now excuses for not returning to painting are non existant. I also have a possible project arranged with Mandy T at Beach Creative to try some portait drawing Workshops when things get back to normal watch this space.
