‘Mark Mitchinson’. Oil on canvas. 42 x 62 cm. 2016.
Portrait of New Zealand actor, friend and muse, Mark Mitchinson who sat for me at his house in Piha, New Zealand late 2015. I made a detail drawing and worked on the canvas back in my studios in Wales, UK, finishing the portrait the following year. It now hangs in Mark’s Mum, Freda’s home in Titirangi, New Zealand, above her piano.
