Still working on this one a bit. For once (not counting the profile views) I wasn’t looking at the camera.
I’ve painted this portrait because I felt I was missing a more ‘vulnerable’ view.
Hopefully this one, on a clear plate, will fit in well with the rest of my collection.
So much detail and “perfection” to go with the idea that this type of the plate is one your Gran might get out “for best”.
The start of my “fancy” plate. It’s such a hideous plate and is supposedly one of those used for visitors, you know, “for best”.
So I’m going to paint myself all “done up” and a bit over the top.

Not completely sure about this one because of the shape the image ended up. I could always extend it and paint the rest in but it was supposed to just be a glimpse.
Looking out at the audience, from the back of a plate.
A work in progress. Hair is infuriating.
Clear plate and the most detailed miniature of myself I have ever painted.
It’s an attempt at transparency in a portrait (hence the plate) and I have painted on both sides to give the viewer as information much as possible. The thing is, you are still only seeing me how I want you to and I can never fully represent myself in just one painting.
This is a precious piece; giving life to an otherwise mundane plate.
I hit it with a hammer.
A view of me in my hat that I wear a lot of the time in this cold weather but rarely photograph because it’s off when I’m inside. Just another facet.
