Muyi

 This year has been hectic in so many different ways.

This portrait was finished in July. His name is Muyiwa, my neighbour. He is part of the NHS and has been working non-stop since the Cover-19 situation started.

His portrait is part of the initiative started by the artist Tom Croft. 

I did one version on acrylics and another one in soft pastels.





Siblings. Commission // hermanos. Encargo :)

I had great fun working on this commission :)

Sky Portrait Artist of the WEEK!

During the lock down Sky arts had a brilliant initiative: bringing Sky Artist of the Year to everyone all over the globe, but not just as viewers but also as contestants. People from all over the world submitted the most amazing portraits of the sitters, for a few hours, no matter where we were, we all were painting together in the same moment :)
Here are a few of the portraits I did.

Durante el confinamiento, Sky Arts tuvo una idea fabulosa: traer el programa de television a todo el mundo, pero no como meros espectadores sino como concursantes. Gente de todas partes participó con retratos geniales de los modelos, por unas pocas horas, sin importar donde estuviéramos, estábamos pintando juntos, en el mismo momento :)
Aquí, algunos de los retratos que hice.

"Bernardine Evaristo", acrylic on canvas. Painted in under 1h30mins just before deadline. I wish I had the time to dedicate it more time but I think it came out all right quite quickly 

"Rankin", Quick Sketch, pastels on paper. Very good sitter @rankinarchive

"@willyoungofficial", pastels and charcoal on paper #mypaotw

@clarebalding for #mypaotw. *20 min sketch* Pastel on paper.

@wmarybeard for #mypaotw. Approximately an hour of work. Acrylic and charcoal on paper.


I love Mary's face, this is my favourite sitter of the PAOTW. And once more, another great conversation between sitter and painter... how relevant this is to create a bond that will most definitely show on the final work.


I like to change techniques and approaches every now and then to explore other possibilities.

This is was my first version of Mary Beard. Charcoal and pastel on paper.
