Digital Portrait Gallery - Charles

A dear friend of many years and a lovely man. A portrait done from life and a series of photos. Charles was dying of cancer when I painted this but I wanted to remember him as he had been.

I based the colours on his colours using artist’s licence and my memory of him as a healthy person. His favourite tie fits in with the colour harmonies.

I used mainly airbrush and other brushes on a ridged pastel paper.
This painting was done with Corel Painter. I also do portraits in traditional media. I have done hundreds of portraits in my life and specialise in child portraits and “lightning” portraits. For commissions, lectures, demonstrations or live portrait drawing sessions for exhibitions email Jeanie. I live in England but will travel anywhere!
