12 Nov New Portrait Project for 2013
I am embarking on a new project for 2013 – portraits of the people I know. The aim is to exhibit these somewhere later in 2013. I kicked the project off last week when we were in Seasalter – a self-portrait and also a sketch of Sian Jones. Although it doesn’t look like it from the drawings, we actually had a lovely time.
I have had an overwhelming response to the project already, with a portrait a week for 6 months in 2013, hence starting the project this year.
One of the questions I have put to people is whether they have a favourite portrait painting or photograph. If so, one of my ideas is to draw or paint them in the same pose, it could be fun, let’s see.
