With some afternoons at home, I’m finishing a new portrait – a second one of Dench – still not quite complete but I’ll finish it when I can and get it up on the art site for general availability, prints etc. Brand new easel too: my old one cost me a few quid from a Bristol Oxfam many years ago – I finally treated myself to a great big easel with a crank and everything – just wonderful.
As some of you have asked, here is a sequence of images showing how ‘Grande Dame’ was painted. It’s still yet to get it photographed to best reflect the original, but when I do I’ll put it on derrenbrownart.com with prints for sale.
As ever, acrylics on canvas, this one 5 foot x 5 foot.
I’m quite happy to tell you that in the near future there will be more Portrait-sequences done by Derren if there is enough interest for it. He himself still sees it as a hobby but many including my good self, think he has greatly matured (eventhough the term ‘matured’ is greatly subjective in itself) as an Artist and in his painting style (He is just Good!)….so i’d say: Please, bring it on Derren! xx
