Daryl J Hembrough in a small work. Acrylic, oil and pencil on card. 18 x 26cm.
I was late to the class and quickly grabbed some small pieces of cardboard. Daryl is great to work with. The background material had a very interesting colour, oscillating between green and an ochre. This was the first session at the portrait class at the Mary Ward Centre with the tutor John Close.
I painted with a fairly large brush in the session, then at home I made a few coloured oil paint glazes and lastly finished with two coloured pencils. The frame and understated wallpaper is from the Wallace collection.
See the details below, plus three recent portraits of Daryl together.
