Speight Family

Here is a portrait painted over the summer.

This is Franco, Midge and Roddy. Franco taking top tier in the triangular composition, Midge looking calm and Roddy playing for laughs.

I wanted the painting to be polished and flat and towards photorealist. It is a relief sometimes to forego stylistic brushiness and concentrate on likeness and form alone. It is time consuming but satisfying to see a clean end result.
