SELF PORTRAIT

ANDY HAMILTON

Sorry it has been a while since I last logged on, it’s been a busy year. Here are 2 new pictures which I’ve done for a show in Austrailia in December, more info to follow.
The portrait of Andy Hamilton, the late saxaphone player from Birmingham is painted in acrylic on board and is 82cm x 53cm. I liked the way the top of his saxaphone contoured around like he was a snake charmner and this instrument was a snake.

The second image is quite an intense self portrait with chiaro scuro lighting. It’s a drawing in charcoal and is 84cm x 67cm. I think sometimes the use of black space adds to the stmosphere. I love the idea of doing self portraits, in the spirit of Rembrandt, I try to do at least one a year.
