‘John Forsythe Esq’
Oil on canvas 20 x 16 ins
This is an informal painting of John, a successful business man.
John’s wife Margaret came into the gallery and asked me if I would paint his portrait.
John, who is at the helm of a successful transport business and normally wears a suit for work, decided that I paint him dressed informally,relaxing in his home, whilst watching television.
I worked from an initial sitting, made notes and took photographs for reference, as John chatted away about his climb from rags to riches.
