Portrait on Blue. Acrylic on prepared 1960’s Daler canvas paper. 48 x 40cm.
I liked this painting enough to have it hanging up in my house.
Made at the Tuesday evening portrait class at the Mary Ward Centre, Queens Square, London.
Unfortunately, when I glued it to the backing the paper buckled up, the age of the paper has made it rather fragile.
Above: the original portrait, lightly photoshopped to bring out the warmth, as a black and white, at an angle in blue-ish light, in the dark and in situ.
Above are some details and a blurry shot of the palette.
