Jack

This is a pastel portrait of Jack, a child of just four, when I drew his portrait.  He had come over from Sydney for only a short time, so we had to try and catch his delightful and smiley personality in a few sittings.  He has a wonderful smile, and very open extrovert character, and was a great sitter!

Louis was the most delightful sitter, with huge brown eyes, and bright red hair. He was quite reserved to start with, just looking at me out of wide eyes, watching carefully everything I did, but soon relaxed, and was soon one of my most talkative and lively sitters! I remember he watched an exciting video while I drew him, and kept up a running commentary...

When Mathilda sat for me she was just 15.  She has the most amazing lion-like golden mane of hair, which cascades  down her back in dramatic fashion.  Initially I had been instructed to draw her with it tied back, but we decided that it should be shown in its full glory!  She is quite shy, but direct as you can see from her gaze.

Nieve is just five years old in this portrait but was a model sitter, even managing to sit still without the usual TV film to watch or any other distraction when the need arose.  She has the most wonderful eyes and a soft open gaze typical of a little girl of her age.  I have tried to capture her candour and sense of humour as well as her natural beauty...

This little girl was enchanting, sitting with her father, as the portrait was a surprise present for her mother. She has the most wonderful colouring as her mother is black and her father white.  Her hair was just slightly tinged with gold, and her little face a beautiful golden cafe with huge dark brown eyes.  I loved drawing this portrait.

Giles

Giles was only two and half when he sat for this portrait.  Naturally his mother sat with him, and we had lots of short breaks.  I think you can see that he is quite a mischievous, merry child, with a huge personality, despite his young age!
