Gabby - Portrait

This oil sketch of my daughter Gabby has been a joy to paint. I hope I have captured something of her impish character. It is painted from a photo reference and also from life.

Self Portrait with unkempt hair

This is my first oil painting of the year and it's a self portrait. It is done as a practice piece to get used to handling oils after a winter of using Acrylics and watercolours. Instead of canvas I painted this on a lovely Italian poplar wood panel.
