Pastel on Burgundy Colourfix Paper – 70cm x 50cm
Each year for the Seymour Agricultural Show I do a portrait of one of the members of the Seymour Pastoral & Agricultural Society. In 2005 it was the turn of this fine, upstanding gentleman who is very well known and respected in the area, having been farming in the district, with his family, for many years.
I really enjoy portraits of men who have reached ‘a certain age’, and who have so much character in their faces. (Ladies in a similar situation always want to be made to look younger for some reason)!!! I achieved a good likeness with Alan, and he was very pleased with the result and now has it proudly displayed over his mantlepiece!
