The Male Line, Sammy’s Turn

That was quite a busy week! Amongst a million other things I have completed a base drawing for my next portrait in the Warwick male line. This will be number six and here he is. Of all the paintings I have made this will probably cost me the most agony but I am well prepared for the effort in exchange for the privilege of working on this picture. This is my son Sam and he might never know (unless he reads this!) how much pleasure I will be experiencing working on the much loved face of the beautiful boy that turned into this man to be proud of and admired. I just hope I can do it justice. I have deliberately, very deliberately,  chosen to paint just his face without any other symbols, distractions or surroundings.
