For Sale

The start of some larger, more involved paintings thinking about composition and narrative more. During the Covid 19 pandemic, this portrait represents me in my safe space – the studio where I can let my mind relax from external worries for a while. I have just noticed I am being viewed and not sure how I feel about it.

I also used this as a study of chiaroscuro with strong side lighting, wanting to focus on a realistic approach to painting while keeping painterly elements.
