Paul

🔴 I painted this 9 year old boy as a commission for a friend. Paul came to sit for me two mornings, listening to Annie MG Schmidt stories on my laptop as we worked. He sat in six ten minute sessions each morning, with long breaks between them to play and relax, a method I learnt from my Wackers teacher Irma Braat. In this way, it is possible to paint quite young children from life.
