"JONATHAN FARR" Portrait. Oil on board 35cm x 31cm.
Jonathan and I painted each other in a quick painting session in January. It was a tricky arrangement as we were both moving all the time, making it difficult and the result seemed unsatisfactory. Looking at it now it seems a reasonable likeness although he said I made him look older - definitely a valid criticism - Oh dear! (also someting about it looks vaguely Red Indian. )

The trees throw long contrasting shadows over the grass in evening light. An idea for a painting. I'd like to capture the moment of light .
