Head Study - Portrait of Aprill

During the time I was away on holiday from art school, the class did a head study. To catch up  and having to have a live model to complete the project, darling daughter Aprill sat for me. I had begun with a photo and then worked from life in a loosely painted style while trying to capture Aprill's fine features. Thank you Aprill for being my model, and, the teacher liked it .

Conversing In Blue - NFS

Painting interiors has a special appeal to me. After completing this little painting it was given to a friend as a birthday gift. My intention was, with my friend in mind, to depict a cosy conversation area in an elegant room. The blue Louis chairs facing each other could be seen as an intimate setting for a little conversation.
