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.
