A Portrait of Three Brothers

Another challenging portrait commission, this time with a building involved! This portrait was such fun to paint, as I love the relaxed pose of the brothers; being asked to keep it looking like a 'selfie' was quite unique in the request, and I happily obliged. As with lots of my work, it's great when I can come away from a piece and have learnt something about myself as an artist and what I am capable of. Being requested to paint the building as it is shown was daunting at first, but with every line measured, every brick painted, I overcame that feeling of trepidation completely. I definitely won't be shying away from painting buildings in the future!

Created on Bockingford cold pressed watercolour paper using watercolours, coloured pencils and acrylics.
