Portrait of a Cavalier

Portrait of a Cavalier
November 24, 2017
This portrait is one that I painted with an exhibition in mind a couple of years ago, and she now hangs on the wall of the reception in Mutley's of Ashby boutique. I used loads of 'creative license' during the painting of this piece. I referred to the photograph  (below, kind permission of photographer Kerli Toode) for the main concept and some of the details , and then added my own ideas to create a piece with individuality.
