Capturing a likeness

 

Most painters aim to develop a unique visual language.

I approach each piece with bold colours and interpretive mark making. In order to create something bespoke, I always aim to take each portrait in a direction that a camera or Photoshop filter cannot. I do, however, work hard to capture an excellent likeness of the subject. For peace of mind, I offer one minor edit for free. Here you can see previous samples with the original reference photos.
