Portraits, in progress …

(in progress) Portraits in oil on 10×8″ canvas. Rose Strang 2019

Today’s progress on a private portrait commission, the figure on the left is more or less finished, it just needs a bit of tweaking with tone and colour, and with a bit more work on the figure on the right I think it’ll be finished tomorrow.

I’m trying to keep it fairly loose, showing brushwork and a nice sense of energy – it was a lovely day at Portobello beach with soft light and a feel of spring in the air. I’ll add some subtle sea and clouds as a last touch (that will be the least of my worries – portraits are considerably more tricky than clouds!)
