‘John Forsythe Esq’

An informal portrait painting of a business man relaxing at his home, whilst watching a racehorse he owns on television

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.
