Boy painting for Marina


“Boy painting for Marina”
40cm x 50cm (16″ x 20″) Oil on W&N canvas texture paper 300gsm.
This is a painting I did for , one of my students as part of the art class.
I do the first portrait, we share the second one, by me doing the difficult bits and the student the easier. Finally the student will do the third and I only intervene as necessary.
This is the stage that can take either a short or a long time, depending on the person. My goal is to see a degree of autonomy in the student. This may or may not include a personal style showing yet, rather a base upon which he/she can grow further. Guidance is still necessary but that varies with the individual too.

“Naomi.” 40cm x 50cm (16″ x 20″)
Oil on W&N canvas texture paper 300gsm.
On the happy side with this study after 2.5 years in the doldrums.
My eyesight got adjusted to the glasses as part of natural process, instead of having to solve the problem of focusing the lenses to my painting distance. Quite handy…
Next I hope they iron the details of multi-focal contact lenses as I would find even better
