A project currently on the boil is a group portrait exhibition that I'm organising in Bath. The rules for the show, as they stand at the moment, is that all the portraits are A6 in size and depict people that the artist thinks represents Bath in some way. This portrait is of my sister Clementine and is a dummy run for the real thing. I decided to get Clem to sit for ten minutes, did the rough sketch that you see below, then took two photos of her. Returning to the studio I used the pics as reference to add the colour, make the eyes level, soften the chin ect ect. The result has left Clem with volumised hair and a sad expression.
