PORTRAIT DRAWINGWAS MY FIRST LOVE
A Selection of Self Portraits completed between 1974 – 79. Note the intensity of the gaze – lost in concentration. Self Portraits are the best way to learn how to work from a live model, and the time I spent completing them was well spent.
Work completed in 1979 when contracted to Harvey Goldsmith – Promotor – who took Elton John to Russia that year. Much of the work from this period that I still have is signed by Elton and Ray Cooper – Percussionist and lovely man.
Work of Billy Connolly, Sting, Neil Diamond; just a small selection from the 9 years I worked on portrait exhibition and in the Music Industry and for Billy Connolly as his Tour Artist in 1979.
