It’s been a year of portraits for me. Eight portraits, five of them commissions have kept me busy. I have just finished two of my favourites, ‘Aunty Joan Tranter’ and ‘Origins and Inspirations’, a portrait of Elma Kris from Bangarra Dance Theatre. It is always a privilege to paint another human being; to be allowed to really see them, but these two exceptional women have been an absolute joy to paint.
Both of these beautiful women fit the criteria as sitters for portrait entry into the Portia Geach Memorial Award, and entries are currently open. Click on the images to see them in higher resolution, or find them in the Portraits section of the gallery.
