I have been concentrating on portraiture for the past 7 years, mainly using oils, pastels, gouache or charcoal
and other dry media and making life-size (or even larger) paintings and drawings of people only by direct observation during actual settings, literally “face to face”. I feel this way of working works best for me personally.
