My work in the July edition of Painters Magazine.

 one of my paintings of Isaac has been 
selected to appear in the July edition of the Artist magazine.
I started to add images of my work to their online version of the magazine,  and I didn’t realize that there was a competition each month where the editor picks a winner from the Painters online gallery. 
So my little Isaac is famous (for a month) I must say that this is one of my favourite portraits I have done of him
I would encourage you all to go and look at their site, its full of interesting things and all free.

I have now painted quite a few portraits of him, and I have given a few to the family. 

I decided to start to record my process using YouTube, I now have my own channel. If you would like to see them follow the link.

Sketch book portrait

This is a quick sketch book portrait of my grandson, who I am obsessed with at the moment.

I have primed the paper twice with gesso before starting.

On this portrait I begin with sketching out in charcoal, something I don't normally do but I thought I would give it a go.

Using oil paint and solvent to begin I paint the underpainting.

Once this has dried, I then use oil paints with a bit of linseed oil.
