The following week I went along to the portrait painting evening where you can paint alongside members of the ROI at the Mall Galleries with spectators watching you paint. My inspiration and drive comes from the landscape and the effects of light on nature so I haven't given a lot of time or thought to portrait painting. However, having seen some of the work produced at the ROI and having had a go myself, I have the urge to tackle a few self portraits and still lifes in the coming year.
I have six paintings currently in an exhibition at The Aubrey Gallery in Great Dunmow and they have a great piece in the January edition of 'Essex Life' magazine which features one of my paintings. The exhibition 'Four Seasons' lasts until 25 January 2014. A few examples of my work can be seen below.
