A few times now I’ve been commissioned to do portraits as birthday presents. I always feel there should be a complete embargo on mentioning what I’m working on, publicly, or showing work in progress. I always fear that the recipient may find out, however random or unlikely that may be. So, what may look like a month of inactivity has actually been a period of solid painting. For the last month I’ve been hard at it, working on two portraits, brothers, as a surprise birthday present. Here are the finals with a few work in progress shots. Both oil on canvas, 10 x 8 inches, painted from supplied photos.
