About the Work
Portraiture has to be one of the most difficult but satisfying forms of art. The pose appeals with the subject gazing beyond the frame – pensive, possibly wistful. There is a subtle use of tones and an interesting use of the canvas with much of it unused, giving it more focus.
Doug Davidson, Journalist at the Rivercity Press, for the Nov 2019 instalment of the My Choice exhibition series.
