A portrait of Margaret. Painted in a more playful style, inspired by the colourful top Margaret is wearing. By chance we had a vase that just about matches the pattern perfectly.
This painting was attempted from a sitting, which I began a few months ago. I posted my initial results on the blog. I was never satisfied with the results and could not get to grips with taking it to a finish. I started again and relied on the photographs I took at the time and I am much more satisfied with the end result. A real learning experience, and next time I work from sittings I am sure I will be better prepared.
