2017 HIDDEN FACES


Despite the success of Hidden Faces, I was never happy with the end result and reworked the portrait on its return to my studio. I guess this is looked upon negatively by some but in the end I had to feel like I’d achieved what I’d set out to do.

This version of the portrait I call ‘Conversation with the Professor’.

My reasons for reworking were that I didn’t think the original version captured the sitter’s true character. Professor Kingsbury is a great thinker and very articulate talker and I wanted to capture him doing both - a challenge for any portrait! I admire this in him, he talks about serious issues and with great passion.  

I have given him a more serious look, turning the face slightly and have adjusted the background.
