Portrait of the Golfer ‘Rory Mcllroy’

We are going to be gripped by the Open fever this week as the World’s greatest golf tournament gets underway at Royal Portrush. I hope that Rory Mcllroy will be victorious as I have a spot for Rory having painted his portrait recently.

This is the sort of bespoke piece that I can do for you if you are a golfer, or any other type of sportsperson or a general portrait of yourself come to think of it.

The reason that I chose to do a portrait of Rory is that he is a household name and recognisable by many and shows the likeness I can achieve.

Give me a call on 07746 001904 and I will explain the process – in the meantime, good luck Rory!

‘Foggy Morning’

I sold this painting from my gallery, which is housed in a rural complex of North Staffordshire. There is a  driven pheasant shoot on an estate about half a mile away. The client who bought the painting is into field sports in a big way and is a member of the shoot.

‘Oliver’

‘Oliver’

Pastel on paper 15″ x 12″

This is a commissioned  pastel portrait of Oliver, who at the time was four years of age. I find pastel portraits of children particularly demanding for there are no characteristic features to latch onto and children are smooth and wrinkle free.
