Repeating Patterns

Repeating Patterns, oil on linen, 50x60cm
The 3d painting in the series ‘The Four Ages of Woman’ is titled ‘Repeating Patterns'. The model, an artist friend, is wearing a ruff made from 17th century needle lace- inspired by many ruffs seen in 17th century portraits, like in Larkin’s portrait of Anne Clifford at the Portrait Gallery in London.

My model is wearing what she wanted to wear and I painted her as honest and truthfully as I could, only adding the lace collar.

On show at the BP Portrait Award 2014, London, until 21 September 2014
