“If I could choose an historical period in which to be an artist, I suppose I would have to say that I would feel most comfortable among the figurative painters of the Fin de siecle… I do feel part of an ongoing tradition of ‘jobbing’ portraitists. It’s simply that working to commission gives me the opportunities to face the sort of artistic challenges I relish most.”

Painter’s tip
Paint the picture as a whole - don't paint anything twice until you've painted everything once.
