People

This page is a store-room for my sketches and studies of people. All are either drawn/painted from a live model. Some go on to be framed and sold as works on paper and others are used purely for reference.

Mediums vary depending on the subject and how much I can carry (or remember) to take with me!

A number of the works are for sale, and people often buy them direct from my portfolio. They can be supplied unmounted, mounted and ready for framing at home, or framed and ready to hang. If there is a piece below that interests you, please contact me for more information.
