This was my first study of Carolena Nericcio. I was very pleased to have her permission to paint her portrait and to attempt to capture that fabulous bone structure. I preferred the later version but unfortunately did not photograph it before I gave it to her.

These are my first foray into painting. For this I have to thank my teachers Anne Clark, John Paul and Franco for teaching me to love portraiture! This is a truly wonderful hobby and a great way to keep sane. I may not be brilliant, but I'm having a good time just having a go with a paintbrush!

My third ever painting - Jay.
