Hand-Painted Portraits

 A video (with sound) about how one of these imaginative portraits comes about.

All these paintings are acrylics on Arches hot pressed watercolour paper. They’re of actual people and each composition puts them  in a situation that’s meaningful to them. For example, ‘L’echappé Belle’ was for a French executive who has a strong interest in bandes dessinée or graphic novels. SO here he is described as a sort of Tintin character running past The Bleeding Horse pub in Dublin.
