My portrait of Lord Chief Justice Woolf was unveiled at a dinner at the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple in London on 15th November 2006. The Inner Temple is like walking back in time to the 15th century. The dinner was held in a grand hall straight out of Harry Potter with wooden walls and shields on the wall and everybody that I spoke to had perfect elecution, manners and etiquette. Anne and myself felt a bit like fish out of water at the start but everyone was so nice to us we just had a great time. The portrait seemed to go down well. The brief was to be more informal and relaxed than most of the other portraits in the temple which is why it was set at Lord Woolfs home rather than in robes in the Temple.  It took me about 5 months to paint and is the result of 5 sittings . It is painted in acrylis and will soon be framed. Look out for an article on the portrait in the December edition of Artists and Illustrators magazine.(see the above image for a close up)
