Experience with Teenagers

Recently I spent some weeks in London painting 5 water colour portraits of teenagers. We began the sittings at midday, accommodating the teenagers need for long mornings in bed.

When possible we included their pets. Pets make sittings more relaxed and the often tense sitter will concentrate more on your being able to replicate their beloved pet and forget about themselves.

Great relief when the response on looking at the results was “Cool!”

See some of these painting here.
