In the dash to fill my long/thin frames for an upcoming exhibition I did one of the Leeds- Liverpool canal from the bridge. I did a similar view a few years ago, but this is from a recent photograph. The orientation really suits this format.
It is also three years to the day that I started this blog. I might buy myself a cake.
A client wanted a figurative male painting in a similar style to another that they own. I originally posted a version of this on 12th January 2015. The pose complements the other painting that they have. Hopefully I have emphasised the muscularity, but I did lose the likeness in the facial features which I felt I captured on the original. I’ve taken years off the guy in this one.
