Another hour or so working on the Anne Hathaway portrait and time to take stoke. To help this process along here is the current portrait I’m working compared to one I made last year. The first thing to say is that the photographs that both were based on must have been taken either side of Ms Hathaway’s Oscar winning performance in Les Misérables. The second is that the previous painting was much more straight forward whereas the latest version is heading towards a much more romantic, almost neo classical, style. Now this interesting in that it was not what I intended but just developed as I worked on the painting. I’m not sure whether the painting is completed yet – I need to cogitate on this a bit more.
Dance away the heart ache.
