W.I.P, Portrait

When I saw one of the first portraits , ( posted here 2013),  that I’d painted in over 20 yrs, worn out and fading I decided to give my young friend,  another. I’ve enjoyed painting it very much and had the same opportunity, as I have begun with the chakma people , to use my gift for the benefit of  others  Makes me feel good about it, at this stage of my life. Only have the shirt to finish and some shading on the forehead.

The Warrior reworked

Having rediscovered my preferred style of working,  I have reworked  this canvas and have achieved my aim on it  at last. Notice my little visitor on the fence,  I think in his honor the painting should be called Blue bird.

Coming together nicely.

At last, I have achieved an aim after struggling for weeks, even a  number of year’s,  on  my lost and forgotten vision when I first saw abstract art in my uni days 1993. It was awaken by an artist I saw on twitter from the UK who’s  name escapes me now and a friend pointed me in the way of Ellen Rolli an American artist, who’s work has also been helpful to jog my memory. So I’m really excited about this painting,  it’s been a long time.
