Painting Antonio whilst he sings and plays Guitar

Painting Antonio

I recently painted a talented songwriter friend of mine named Antonio Grifoni. Until then, I had been somewhat doubtful about how I was going to do this as he rarely sits without playing his guitar.

My approach was one that I adopt when painting a landscape – keeping it loose and more impressionist than some of my other portraits. I enjoyed using more colour than I might normally, though keeping them fairly muted.

We listened to his music the whole way through. My Instagram has quite an amusing video of one of the sittings.

At the beginning of the year I was very lucky to collect the keys to my new studio in Notting Hill. I am totally in love with the space which has a large north facing window ideal for my portrait work. I chose a gorgeous blue grey for the studio walls which compliments the various hanging landscape paintings. It feels extremely homely now and I love working there.

I welcome visits so please do book an appointment should you like to come and see my new space and available pictures.
