September 2017 until May 2018 – Move to Nine Elms, Battersea

I bought, gutted, rebuilt and moved into a fabulous new studio and home in Nine Elms between the New American Embassy and Battersea Power Station.

September 2017 I delivered the finished portrait of Isaac, Charlie and Raphael to Toronto, and The Old laboratory Studio in Chelsea was knocked down to make way for a new development.


Summer 2017 – Portrait of Isaac, Charles and Raphael in progress.

 

The portrait was 6 feet by 4 feet and was too big to fit whole on the easel, it had to be rolled from the top or the bottom as I was working.

I designed the portrait using triangles as the form, a triangle of the boy’s faces and another of their bodies.  I didn’t want anyone to dominate so it was important that the faces were all the same size.  As Isaac is leaning forward his face is on the same space as Charlie’s and Raphael’s smaller face is the same size as his brothers because he is at the front.


Spring 2017

I painted Charles dance as the subject of a short film we made together.
