TRIPTYCH DRAWING OF RONALD (44″ x 23″)

March 6th, 2008

I made these drawings while I was working on the large portrait painting of Ronald last year. They weren’t really preliminary drawings, more getting to know his face. It was a wonderful commission to work on and I was very pleased with the images from the original sitting and wanted to develop them a little further. While the painting is lit with natural light coming streaming in from the large window I used very strong, directional light for this series which created very dramatic chiaroscuro style shadows which I love.

The triptych drawing is currently on display in The Wales Portrait Award which is touring around Wales for the next 2 years. It is yet another carbon copy of the BP Portrait Award promoting figurative painting and there are some strong pieces in it including former BP Award winner Peter Edwards with his portrait of Ryan Giggs.
