portrait of Dougie

This piece was worked from life.

Portraits, ideally, should be worked from life. However, it is also possible to work from good photos taken from various angles. My 2007 portrait of Douglas Clark was based on archive photographs, taken at different ages and angles, using one iconic image of him as my primary reference. Another variation is the cameo, a low relief suitable for wall-mounting.
