About the Work
Portraiture is invigorating, a place where the world stops still and you have to really look at a person without noise. A one-on-one snapshot attempting to capture an essence and/or presence. I love to paint. At the moment my paintings are somewhat similar to this man in his beret holding his cigarette. The use of colour and big bold brush strokes is an appealing aspect I would like to learn.
