Close Examination – Oil on Canvas Board – (75cm x 50cm) 2012
A portrait of Paula started in 2005, but it lost its way and was put aside. Only after I saw an original Chuck Close at the NPG did it give me the confidence to pick it up again and complete the work. Although it is not a copy of the Chuck Close style it did let me see that using the strong primary colours and extrapolated shapes (which is more akin to my style) could work as I had originally intended.
