The above two portraits were painted last year in a live model portrait class taught by Drewfus Gates at the now defunct Claremont School of Art. We had each model for a total of 9 hours – 3 hours per week over 3 weeks. I had completely forgotten about these pictures, and just rediscovered them….they look better to my eyes with the passage of time.

These are copies painted in acrylic of Nikolia Fechin works – I adore his portrait and people studies, he had a real connection with each of his sitters. The proportions of my paintings are not quite correct compared with his originals but they look OK as people pictures.
