About my works in this show...
I've always considered myself a landscape painter and was quite surprised to find so many portraits in my earlier folders. My father was an inspiring model his features presented all the toil and experience which seemed so pronounced in those that worked on the Thames. A powerful contrast to the fresh faced local youth.

Drawing a portrait requires the greatest concentration from the artist. There is no artful ambiguity. It is either right or very wrong. Astonishing then to learn that in previous centuries portrait painters were somewhat despised by their serious contemporaries who referred to them as Phizz-mongers!
