Viv around eleven in the morning summer 2018 FINAL sm

Here’s my latest commission.

Viv around eleven in the morning, 2018. Oil on canvas. Summer – Autumn 2018.
Viv has a vibrant and intelligent presence. Capturing her look and the brilliant summer sunlight of those morning portrait sessions became the subjects of the painting. 
The composition has Viv and her most treasured possessions against verdant garden backdrop.
The paint itself has large variations of texture, transparency and brush marks to denote skin, metal and vegetation. 
I want the viewer to feel you are in the room with her, in the midst of a good conversation.

As usual with a major painting there is a book collecting the influences, sketches and different stages of the work.

Have a look at the book of the painting here.

Here’s the book, colour study and final work all together.
