This is my final display and also a photo of me being a bit silly in my posh dress infront of my work. For scale reasons.
We Were Here is a fantastic show and I’m so proud of everyone involved!
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.
This plate is has “Candyfloss” printed on the back of it and the colours are all pastel so I decided it would suit a stereotypically summer-y portrait.
I am pretty happy with the resulting portrait although I might touch up the hair a bit another day.
Comfortable and relaxed to go with a plate from my childhood.
Although I don’t particularly like the effect of having more than one portrait on a plate as you can’t look at one without being aware of the others.
Worth experimenting with to see if it’s something I want to pursue though and I don’t like working on a non-white plate. It’s a very odd painting experience.
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”.

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.
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.
Much happier with this one too.
Detail of a tiny painting I did today, a reminder that I need to take some actually good photographs of myself to work from.
The full piece of which the paper is about the size of a postcard.
