Portrait of my Stepfather

Portrait of my Stepfather. Oil on canvas. 40x50cm. 2017.

“This is a portrait of my Stepfather, Neville Dean, who sat for me sat for me in June 2017, completed in November the same year. It is an intimate portrait of a man who has been my parent for over 40 years. Inspired by Hans Holbein the Younger, whose portrait drawings I have studied first hand at the Royal Print Room, Windsor Castle, I use a mixture of drawing and painting techniques in combination.”
