A painting from the past

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.Bi- George (2)

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.
