Head Study

Painted rapidly this summer after having spent alot of time painting still life and landscape, this was something of an excersise in re-assurance. I spend alot more time over the winter working on portrait, partly because the weather is less reliable, but also because all the major portrait competitions in London, take place in the spring. This usually means at a certain point in late summer I start getting panicky. I also have to say that I love the challenge of painting figures, even if it's of me. Shortly after finishing this I started work on several large ( 6'x5') paintings wich I hope to have finished by early next year.
