My painting entitled "Barry" just got through to the second stage of judging at the BP Portrait awards 2017 in the National Gallery of London.
The Old man painting completed in oils on canvas, First painting of this type which is quite extreme in regards of detail and heavily exagerrated measuring 60cm x60cm. Still available to buy in the The Yard Gallery in Belfast.
"Sleepwalker" painting process
Preliminary stages of new work showing my under drawing and line work. I have blocked in the rough under drawing using charcoal as well as graphite and white chalk in places. The canvas is deep edge primed and underpainting background is completed with an oil wash of grey.
