PORTRAITS FINISHED: Sarah Brightman and the Canadian 4 Tenors




HELLO...yup, this is what I have been up to for the past couple of days...painting portraits of the Canadian 4 Tenors and Sarah Brightman.
They will all be in town on Friday playing at our local Hospital's Gala evening to raise money for their Cancer Unit.
I offered to donate portraits of them all as a "Thank you for playing".
Unfortunately I won't be seeing them to give these gifts to them...but am sure they will be in good hands.
It's strange to have a limit of size to paint on (14x18), for me this is so small....I love painting on larger canvases...especially when trying to squeeze 4 men onto one canvas...and also limited by the photo which I had to copy for Sarah Brightman's portrait...anyway...they are done and I have hopefully given you all an idea of the process in which they were painted.

Now to breathe...
And to enjoy the quiet house whilst both our girls are in school...what to do?
OH...trust me, I have a list which is longer than my arm!

But now...to breathe...perhaps take a walk...enjoy the Autumn colours...

Have a good day...
Until tomorrow.
