Girl with Green Scarf

Another portrait of one of my sisters. I took a photo of her when we went for a walk in a park in London and she had this green scarf on that suits her tremendously.

Oil on linen canvas, 25 cm x 35 cm.


Venetian Pineapple

I had a 10 day trip to Italy and came back full of new impressions and a mask bought in Venice. Which I promptly used as a prop on my model pineapple. Oil on canvas board, 24 cm x 30 cm.


I have two sisters. This is a portrait of the youngest one from a series of photos I made earlier. It is probably the largest canvas area I ever tried to paint on, so this was very challenging. I could not get the likeness right for ages. It is still not quite there, but she is recognisable.

Oil on paper, 42cm x 29cm (16.5″ x 11.4″).

Portrait of a Girl in a Red Hat

This is the first portrait I ever tried. It is based on a photo I took of my sister when she was trying this great big red hat on in a shop. I will still make a few small improvements here and there, but I think for now this is a good as it is going to get. It does look like her though! Oil on paper, 7″ x 10″.
