Heatherley’s Annual Exhibition

Heatherley School of Fine Art’s annual exhibition took place last week, showcasing an exciting display of oil paintings and sculptures made by its students. I had myself a selection of four recent portraits on show. See below:

Each portrait was painted from life. All except my self-portrait were painted at Heatherley’s studio with models sitting for the students. I painted my self-portrait from direct observation looking at my reflection in the mirror at home in my improvised studio corner in my living room during lockdown. All four are available for sale (please contact me for more information)
